High Nessus Plugin ID 19058


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


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.


Update the affected package.
