Package : wordpress
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-1599 CVE-2008-0664
Debian Bug : 437085 464170

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

CVE-2007-1599

WordPress allows remote attackers to redirect authenticated users
to other websites and potentially obtain sensitive information.

CVE-2008-0664

The XML-RPC implementation, when registration is enabled, allows
remote attackers to edit posts of other blog users.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.10-1etch3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.3.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress package.

Upgrade instructions
