    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in wordpress, a weblog
    manager.
    
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    problems:
    
    CVE-2007-3238
    
    Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in functions.php in the default theme
    in WordPress allows remote authenticated administrators to inject arbitrary web
    script or HTML via the PATH_INFO (REQUEST_URI) to wp-admin/themes.php.
    
    CVE-2007-2821
    
    SQL injection vulnerability in wp-admin/admin-ajax.php in WordPress before 2.2
    allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands via the cookie
    parameter.
    
    CVE-2008-0193
    
    Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in wp-db-backup.php in WordPress
    2.0.11 and earlier allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or
    HTML via the backup parameter in a wp-db-backup.php action to
    wp-admin/edit.php.
    
    CVE-2008-0194
    
    Directory traversal vulnerability in wp-db-backup.php in WordPress 2.0.3 and
    earlier allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files, delete arbitrary
    files, and cause a denial of service via a .. (dot dot) in the backup parameter
    in a wp-db-backup.php action to wp-admin/edit.php.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version
    2.0.10-1etch1.  Wordpress is not present in the oldstable distribution (sarge).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress package.
