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
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
