Description :

A Gentoo Linux Security Advisory reports :

Due to a lack of input validation, WordPress is vulnerable to SQL
injection and XSS attacks.

An attacker could use the SQL injection vulnerabilities to gain
information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting
issues give an attacker the ability to inject and execute malicious
script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials,
potentially compromising the victim's browser.
