Package : wordpress
Vulnerability : multiple
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-3639 CVE-2007-4153 CVE-2007-4154 CVE-2007-0540

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in wordpress,
a weblog manager. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-3639

Insufficient input sanitising allowed for remote attackers to
redirect visitors to external websites.

CVE-2007-4153

Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities allowed remote
authenticated administrators to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.

CVE-2007-4154

SQL injection vulnerability allowed allowed remote authenticated
administrators to execute arbitrary SQL commands.

CVE-2007-0540

WordPress allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(bandwidth or thread consumption) via pingback service calls with
a source URI that corresponds to a file with a binary content type,
which is downloaded even though it cannot contain usable pingback data.

[no CVE name yet]

Insufficient input sanitising caused an attacker with a normal user
account to access the administrative interface.


For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.10-1etch2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.2.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress package.
