<description>
<p>
James Bercegay of the GulfTech Security Research Team discovered
that WordPress insufficiently checks data passed to the XML-RPC server.
He also discovered that WordPress has several cross-site scripting and
full path disclosure vulnerabilities.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
An attacker could use the PHP script injection vulnerabilities to
execute arbitrary PHP script commands. Furthermore the cross-site
scripting vulnerabilities could be exploited to execute arbitrary
script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable
site.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There are no known workarounds at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All WordPress users should upgrade to the latest available
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/wordpress-1.5.1.3&quot;</code>
</resolution>
