Title: WordPress: HTTP response splitting and XSS vulnerabilities (GLSA 200410-12)
Date: October 14, 2004
Updated: May 22, 2006
WordPress contains HTTP response splitting and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
WordPress is a PHP and MySQL based content management and publishing system.
Vulnerable: < 1.2.2
Unaffected: >= 1.2.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
Due to the lack of input validation in the administration panel scripts, WordPress is vulnerable to HTTP response splitting and cross-site scripting attacks.
A malicious user could inject arbitrary response data, leading to content spoofing, web cache poisoning and other cross-site scripting or HTTP response splitting attacks. This could result in compromising the victim's data or browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All WordPress users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/wordpress-1.2.2"
