Debian Security Advisory DSA 2670-1 (wordpress)

Published: 2012-05-31 15:44:38
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Technical Details:
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 Linux Distribution 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. For the stable distribution (squeeze), those problems have been fixed in version 3.3.2+dfsg-1~squeeze1. For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid), those problems have been fixed in version 3.3.2+dfsg-1.

Recommendations:
We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress Linux Distribution Packages.

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update to wordpress announced via advisory DSA 2670-1.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
