WordPress 3.3.x < 3.3.1 XSS Vulnerability
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106378
SynopsisThe remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the WordPress application running on the remote web server is 3.3.x prior to 3.3.1.
It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to WordPress version 3.3.1 or later.
