RSS   Vulnerabilities for 'Wordpress'   RSS



In WordPress before 4.7.3, there is cross-site request forgery (CSRF) in Press This (wp-admin/includes/class-wp-press-this.php), leading to excessive use of server resources. The CSRF can trigger an outbound HTTP request for a large file that is then parsed by Press This.



In WordPress before 4.7.3 (wp-admin/js/tags-box.js), there is cross-site scripting (XSS) via taxonomy term names.



In WordPress before 4.7.3 (wp-includes/embed.php), there is authenticated Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) in YouTube URL Embeds.



In WordPress before 4.7.3 (wp-admin/plugins.php), unintended files can be deleted by administrators using the plugin deletion functionality.



In WordPress before 4.7.3 (wp-includes/pluggable.php), control characters can trick redirect URL validation.



In WordPress before 4.7.3, there is authenticated Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) via Media File Metadata. This is demonstrated by both (1) mishandling of the playlist shortcode in the wp_playlist_shortcode function in wp-includes/media.php and (2) mishandling of meta information in the renderTracks function in wp-includes/js/mediaelement/wp-playlist.js.



Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in wp-admin/includes/class-wp-posts-list-table.php in the posts list table in WordPress before 4.7.2 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted excerpt.



SQL injection vulnerability in wp-includes/class-wp-query.php in WP_Query in WordPress before 4.7.2 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands by leveraging the presence of an affected plugin or theme that mishandles a crafted post type name.



wp-admin/includes/class-wp-press-this.php in Press This in WordPress before 4.7.2 does not properly restrict visibility of a taxonomy-assignment user interface, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions by reading terms.



Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the wp_ajax_update_plugin function in wp-admin/includes/ajax-actions.php in WordPress before 4.6 allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of subscribers for /dev/random read operations by leveraging a late call to the check_ajax_referer function, a related issue to CVE-2016-6896.
