    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wordpress,
    the weblog manager. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-1599
    
        WordPress allows remote attackers to redirect authenticated users
        to other websites and potentially obtain sensitive information.
    
    CVE-2008-0664
    
        The XML-RPC implementation, when registration is enabled, allows
        remote attackers to edit posts of other blog users.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.0.10-1etch3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.3.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress package.
