    Debian Bug     : 770425
    
    Multiple security issues have been discovered in Wordpress, a web
    blogging tool, resulting in denial of service or information disclosure.
    More information can be found in the upstream advisory at
    https://wordpress.org/news/2014/11/wordpress-4-0-1/
    
    CVE-2014-9031
    
        Jouko Pynnonen discovered an unauthenticated cross site scripting
        vulnerability (XSS) in wptexturize(), exploitable via comments or
        posts.
    
    CVE-2014-9033
    
        Cross site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the password
        changing process, which could be used by an attacker to trick an
        user into changing her password.
    
    CVE-2014-9034
    
        Javier Nieto Arevalo and Andres Rojas Guerrero reported a potential
        denial of service in the way the phpass library is used to handle
        passwords, since no maximum password length was set.
    
    CVE-2014-9035
    
        John Blackbourn reported an XSS in the "Press This" function (used
        for quick publishing using a browser "bookmarklet").
    
    CVE-2014-9036
    
        Robert Chapin reported an XSS in the HTML filtering of CSS in posts.
    
    CVE-2014-9037
    
        David Anderson reported a hash comparison vulnerability for
        passwords stored using the old-style MD5 scheme. While unlikely,
        this could be exploited to compromise an account, if the user had
        not logged in after a Wordpress 2.5 update (uploaded to Debian on 2
        Apr, 2008) and the password MD5 hash could be collided with due to
        PHP dynamic comparison.
    
    CVE-2014-9038
    
        Ben Bidner reported a server side request forgery (SSRF) in the core
        HTTP layer which unsufficiently blocked the loopback IP address
        space.
    
    CVE-2014-9039
    
        Momen Bassel, Tanoy Bose, and Bojan Slavkovic reported a
        vulnerability in the password reset process: an email address change
        would not invalidate a previous password reset email.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.6.1+dfsg-1~deb7u5.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been
    fixed in version 4.0.1+dfsg-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.1+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
