<background>
<p>
WordPress is a popular personal publishing platform with a web
interface.

<description>
<p>
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.

<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could inject arbitrary SQL into WordPress database queries.
An attacker could also determine if a WordPress user existed by trying
to login as that user, better facilitating brute force attacks. Lastly,
an attacker authenticated to view the administrative section of a
WordPress instance could try to edit a file with a malicious filename;
this may cause arbitrary HTML or JavaScript to be executed in users'
browsers viewing /wp-admin/templates.php.
</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-2.0.6&quot;</code>
</resolution>
