Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple CVE(s) were discovered in the src:wordpress package.

CVE-2020-11026

Files with a specially crafted name when uploaded to the Media section can lead to script execution upon accessing the file. This requires an authenticated user with privileges to upload files.

CVE-2020-11027

A password reset link emailed to a user does not expire upon changing the user password. Access would be needed to the email account of the user by a malicious party for successful execution.

CVE-2020-11028

Some private posts, which were previously public, can result in unauthenticated disclosure under a specific set of conditions.

CVE-2020-11029

A vulnerability in the stats() method of class-wp-object-cache.php can be exploited to execute cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 4.1.30+dfsg-0+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution
