- More information:
Two XSS bugs and one potential information disclosure issue were discovered in WordPress, a weblog manager. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Input passed via the post title when performing a
Bulk Editaction and via the
ping_statusparameters is not properly sanitised before being used. Certain input passed via tags in the tags meta-box is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user.
WordPress incorrectly enforces user access restrictions when accessing posts via the media uploader and can be exploited to disclose the contents of e.g. private or draft posts.
The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by these problems.
For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.5+dfsg-0+squeeze1.
For the testing distribution (wheezy), and the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.5+dfsg-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
