Title: WordPress: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200507-02)
Date: July 04, 2005
WordPress contains PHP script injection, cross-site scripting and path disclosure vulnerabilities.
WordPress is a PHP and MySQL based content management and publishing system.
Vulnerable: < 126.96.36.199
Unaffected: >= 188.8.131.52
Architectures: All supported architectures
James Bercegay of the GulfTech Security Research Team discovered that WordPress insufficiently checks data passed to the XML-RPC server. He also discovered that WordPress has several cross-site scripting and full path disclosure vulnerabilities.
An attacker could use the PHP script injection vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary PHP script commands. Furthermore the cross-site scripting vulnerabilities could be exploited to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.
There are no known workarounds at this time.
All WordPress users should upgrade to the latest available version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/wordpress-184.108.40.206"
