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.
