Vulnerability CVE-2007-3238


Published: 2007-06-14   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in functions.php in the default theme in WordPress 2.2 allows remote authenticated administrators to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the PATH_INFO (REQUEST_URI) to wp-admin/themes.php, a different vulnerability than CVE-2007-1622. NOTE: this might not cross privilege boundaries in some configurations, since the Administrator role has the unfiltered_html capability.
