Package : wordpress
Version : 5.0.19+dfsg1-0+deb10u1
CVE ID : CVE-2023-2745
Debian Bug : 1036296

Several security vulnerabilities have been addressed in Wordpress, a
popular content management framework.

WordPress Core is vulnerable to Directory Traversal via the ‘wp_lang’
parameter. This allows unauthenticated attackers to access and load arbitrary
translation files. In cases where an attacker is able to upload a crafted
translation file onto the site, such as via an upload form, this could be also
used to perform a Cross-Site Scripting attack.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version
5.0.19+dfsg1-0+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
