The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-10
(WordPress: Multiple vulnerabilities)
When decoding trackbacks with alternate character sets, WordPress does
not correctly sanitize the entries before further modifying a SQL
query. WordPress also displays different error messages in wp-login.php
based upon whether or not a user exists. David Kierznowski has
discovered that WordPress fails to properly sanitize recent file
information in /wp-admin/templates.php before sending that information
to a browser.
An attacker could inject arbitrary SQL into WordPress database queries.
An attacker could also determine if a WordPress user existed by trying
to login as that user, better facilitating brute-force attacks. Lastly,
an attacker authenticated to view the administrative section of a
WordPress instance could try to edit a file with a malicious filename
browsers viewing /wp-admin/templates.php.
There is no known workaround at this time.
