1 CVE-2014-5266 399 DoS 2014-08-18 2014-10-10
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
The Incutio XML-RPC (IXR) Library, as used in WordPress before 3.9.2 and Drupal 6.x before 6.33 and 7.x before 7.31, does not limit the number of elements in an XML document, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a large document, a different vulnerability than CVE-2014-5265.
2 CVE-2014-5265 399 DoS 2014-08-18 2014-10-10
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
The Incutio XML-RPC (IXR) Library, as used in WordPress before 3.9.2 and Drupal 6.x before 6.33 and 7.x before 7.31, permits entity declarations without considering recursion during entity expansion, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory and CPU consumption) via a crafted XML document containing a large number of nested entity references, a similar issue to CVE-2003-1564.
3 CVE-2013-2173 310 DoS 2013-06-21 2013-08-22
4.3
None Remote Medium Not required None None Partial
wp-includes/class-phpass.php in WordPress 3.5.1, when a password-protected post exists, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a crafted value of a certain wp-postpass cookie.
4 CVE-2012-0937 1 DoS 2012-01-30 2012-01-31
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
** DISPUTED ** wp-admin/setup-config.php in the installation component in WordPress 3.3.1 and earlier does not limit the number of MySQL queries sent to external MySQL database servers, which allows remote attackers to use WordPress as a proxy for brute-force attacks or denial of service attacks via the dbhost parameter, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-4898. NOTE: the vendor disputes the significance of this issue because an incomplete WordPress installation might be present on the network for only a short time.
5 CVE-2011-4957 20 DoS 2012-06-27 2012-06-28
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
The make_clickable function in wp-includes/formatting.php in WordPress before 3.1.1 does not properly check URLs before passing them to the PCRE library, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a comment with a crafted URL that triggers many recursive calls.
6 CVE-2009-3622 310 DoS 2009-10-23 2009-10-26
4.3
None Remote Medium Not required None None Partial
Algorithmic complexity vulnerability in wp-trackback.php in WordPress before 2.8.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption and server hang) via a long title parameter in conjunction with a charset parameter composed of many comma-separated "UTF-8" substrings, related to the mb_convert_encoding function in PHP.
7 CVE-2009-2334 287 1 DoS XSS +Info 2009-07-10 2013-09-10
4.9
None Remote Medium Single system Partial Partial None
wp-admin/admin.php in WordPress and WordPress MU before 2.8.1 does not require administrative authentication to access the configuration of a plugin, which allows remote attackers to specify a configuration file in the page parameter to obtain sensitive information or modify this file, as demonstrated by the (1) collapsing-archives/options.txt, (2) akismet/readme.txt, (3) related-ways-to-take-action/options.php, (4) wp-security-scan/securityscan.php, and (5) wp-ids/ids-admin.php files. NOTE: this can be leveraged for cross-site scripting (XSS) and denial of service.
8 CVE-2008-6767 DoS 2009-04-28 2009-08-26
10.0
None Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
wp-admin/upgrade.php in WordPress, probably 2.6.x, allows remote attackers to upgrade the application, and possibly cause a denial of service (application outage), via a direct request.
9 CVE-2008-5113 352 DoS CSRF 2008-11-17 2012-10-30
4.0
None Remote High Not required None Partial Partial
WordPress 2.6.3 relies on the REQUEST superglobal array in certain dangerous situations, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct delayed and persistent cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks via crafted cookies, as demonstrated by attacks that (1) delete user accounts or (2) cause a denial of service (loss of application access). NOTE: this issue relies on the presence of an independent vulnerability that allows cookie injection.
10 CVE-2008-0194 22 DoS Dir. Trav. 2008-01-09 2008-09-05
7.5
User Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Directory traversal vulnerability in wp-db-backup.php in WordPress 2.0.3 and earlier allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files, delete arbitrary files, and cause a denial of service via a .. (dot dot) in the backup parameter in a wp-db-backup.php action to wp-admin/edit.php. NOTE: this might be the same as CVE-2006-5705.1.
11 CVE-2007-0540 DoS 2007-01-29 2008-09-05
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
WordPress allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (bandwidth or thread consumption) via pingback service calls with a source URI that corresponds to a file with a binary content type, which is downloaded even though it cannot contain usable pingback data.
12 CVE-2007-0539 DoS 2007-01-29 2008-09-05
7.8
None Remote Low Not required None None Complete
The wp_remote_fopen function in WordPress before 2.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (bandwidth or thread consumption) via pingback service calls with a source URI that corresponds to a large file, which triggers a long download session without a timeout constraint.
13 CVE-2006-6017 DoS 2006-11-21 2008-09-05
4.0
None Remote Low Single system None None Partial
WordPress before 2.0.5 does not properly store a profile containing a string representation of a serialized object, which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a string that represents a (1) malformed or (2) large serialized object, because the object triggers automatic unserialization for display.
