DescriptionAccording to its version number, the installation of WordPress hosted on the remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- The application is prone to multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. An attacker can exploit these issues through the 'title' field of the 'Quick/Bulk Edit' section and the 'tags meta box' section. An attacker would require Author or Contributor privileges to take advantage of this.
- The application is prone to an information disclosure vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this issue through the media uploader to disclose posts.
