 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:239
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : wordpress
 Date    : September 19, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated wordpress and php-phpmailer packages fix security
 vulnerabilities:
 
 wp-includes/functions.php in WordPress before 3.6.1 does not properly
 determine whether data has been serialized, which allows remote
 attackers to execute arbitrary code by triggering erroneous PHP
 unserialize operations (CVE-2013-4338).
 
 WordPress before 3.6.1 does not properly validate URLs before use in
 an HTTP redirect, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended
 redirection restrictions via a crafted string (CVE-2013-4339).
 
 wp-admin/includes/post.php in WordPress before 3.6.1 allows remote
 authenticated users to spoof the authorship of a post by leveraging the
 Author role and providing a modified user_ID parameter (CVE-2013-4340).
 
 The get_allowed_mime_types function in wp-includes/functions.php in
 WordPress before 3.6.1 does not require the unfiltered_html capability
 for uploads of .htm and .html files, which might make it easier for
 remote authenticated users to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS)
 attacks via a crafted file (CVE-2013-5738).
 
 The default configuration of WordPress before 3.6.1 does not prevent
 uploads of .swf and .exe files, which might make it easier for remote
 authenticated users to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks
 via a crafted file, related to the get_allowed_mime_types function
 in wp-includes/functions.php (CVE-2013-5739).
 
 Additionally, php-phpmailer has been updated to a newer version
 required by the updated wordpress.
