WordPress is vulnerable to SQL injection, information disclosure, and cross-site scripting attacks.
|Package||www-apps/wordpress on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.0.6|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.0.6|
WordPress is a popular personal publishing platform with a web interface.
When decoding trackbacks with alternate character sets, WordPress does not correctly sanitize the entries before further modifying a SQL query. WordPress also displays different error messages in wp-login.php based upon whether or not a user exists. David Kierznowski has discovered that WordPress fails to properly sanitize recent file information in /wp-admin/templates.php before sending that information to a browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All WordPress users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/wordpress-2.0.6"
