<p>
WordPress is a PHP and MySQL based content management and publishing
system.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
Due to a lack of input validation, WordPress is vulnerable to SQL
injection and XSS attacks.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could use the SQL injection vulnerabilities to gain
information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting
issues give an attacker the ability to inject and execute malicious
script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials,
potentially compromising the victim's browser.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Wordpress users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/wordpress-1.5.1.2&quot;</code>
</resolution>
