Title: WordPress: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200701-10)
Date: January 15, 2007
WordPress is vulnerable to SQL injection, information disclosure, and cross-site scripting attacks.
WordPress is a popular personal publishing platform with a web interface.
Vulnerable: < 2.0.6
Unaffected: >= 2.0.6
Architectures: All supported architectures
When decoding trackbacks with alternate character sets, WordPress does not correctly sanitize the entries before further modifying a SQL query. WordPress also displays different error messages in wp-login.php based upon whether or not a user exists. David Kierznowski has discovered that WordPress fails to properly sanitize recent file information in /wp-admin/templates.php before sending that information to a 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-2.0.6"
