    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in wordpress,
    a weblog manager. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-3639
    
        Insufficient input sanitising allowed for remote attackers to
        redirect visitors to external websites.
    
    CVE-2007-4153
    
        Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities allowed remote
        authenticated administrators to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2007-4154
    
        SQL injection vulnerability allowed allowed remote authenticated
        administrators to execute arbitrary SQL commands.
    
    CVE-2007-0540
    
        WordPress allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
        (bandwidth or thread consumption) via pingback service calls with
        a source URI that corresponds to a file with a binary content type,
        which is downloaded even though it cannot contain usable pingback data.
    
    [no CVE name yet]
    
        Insufficient input sanitising caused an attacker with a normal user
        account to access the administrative interface.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.10-1etch2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.2.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress package.
    
    Upgrade instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
    
    
    Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch

    Source archives:
    
      http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/w/wordpress/wordpress_2.0.10.orig.tar.gz
        Size/MD5 checksum:   520314 e9d5373b3c6413791f864d56b473dd54
      http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/w/wordpress/wordpress_2.0.10-1etch2.diff.gz
        Size/MD5 checksum:    29327 663e0b7c1693ff63715e0253ad5cc036
      http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/w/wordpress/wordpress_2.0.10-1etch2.dsc
        Size/MD5 checksum:      891 2e297f530d472f47b40ba50ea04b1476
    
    Architecture independent packages:
    
      http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main/w/wordpress/wordpress_2.0.10-1etch2_all.deb
        Size/MD5 checksum:   521244 4851fe016749b1b9c819fd8d5785198e
    
    
      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
