    Two XSS bugs and one potential information disclosure issue were discovered
    in wordpress, a weblog manager.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    
    CVE-2011-0700
    
      Input passed via the post title when performing a "Quick Edit" or "Bulk Edit"
      action and via the "post_status", "comment_status", and "ping_status"
      parameters is not properly sanitised before being used.
      Certain input passed via tags in the tags meta-box is not properly sanitised
      before being returned to the user.
    
    
    CVE-2011-0701
    
      Wordpress incorrectly enforces user access restrictions when accessing posts
      via the media uploader and can be exploited to disclose the contents
      of e.g. private or draft posts.
    
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by these problems.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.0.5+dfsg-0+squeeze1
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), and the unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.5+dfsg-1
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
