Two vulnerabilities were discovered in wordpress, a web blogging tool. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues.

  • CVE-2018-10100

    The redirection URL for the login page was not validated or sanitized if forced to use HTTPS.

  • CVE-2018-10102

    The version string was not escaped in the get_the_generator function, and could lead to cross-site scripting (XSS) in a generator tag.
