Debian DSA-2470-1 : wordpress - several vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 59093
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


Several vulnerabilities were identified in WordPress, a web blogging tool. As the CVEs were allocated from releases announcements and specific fixes are usually not identified, it has been decided to upgrade the wordpress package to the latest upstream version instead of backporting the patches.

This means extra care should be taken when upgrading, especially when using third-party plugins or themes, since compatibility may have been impacted along the way. We recommend that users check their install before doing the upgrade.


Upgrade the wordpress packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), those problems have been fixed in version 3.3.2+dfsg-1~squeeze1.
