1 CVE-2012-4422 264 2012-09-14 2012-09-17
3.5
None Remote Medium Single system None Partial None
wp-admin/plugins.php in WordPress before 3.4.2, when the multisite feature is enabled, does not check for network-administrator privileges before performing a network-wide activation of an installed plugin, which might allow remote authenticated users to make unintended plugin changes by leveraging the Administrator role.
2 CVE-2012-4421 264 Bypass 2012-09-14 2012-09-17
4.0
None Remote Low Single system None Partial None
The create_post function in wp-includes/class-wp-atom-server.php in WordPress before 3.4.2 does not perform a capability check, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended access restrictions and publish new posts by leveraging the Contributor role and using the Atom Publishing Protocol (aka AtomPub) feature.
3 CVE-2012-3385 264 +Info 2012-07-22 2012-07-23
5.0
None Remote Low Not required Partial None None
WordPress before 3.4.1 does not properly restrict access to post contents such as private or draft posts, which allows remote authors or contributors to obtain sensitive information via unknown vectors.
4 CVE-2012-3384 352 CSRF 2012-07-22 2012-08-09
6.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the customizer in WordPress before 3.4.1 allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of unspecified victims via unknown vectors.
5 CVE-2012-1936 352 CSRF 2012-05-03 2012-05-10
6.8
None Remote Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
** DISPUTED ** The wp_create_nonce function in wp-includes/pluggable.php in WordPress 3.3.1 and earlier associates a nonce with a user account instead of a user session, which might make it easier for remote attackers to conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks on specific actions and objects by sniffing the network, as demonstrated by attacks against the wp-admin/admin-ajax.php and wp-admin/user-new.php scripts. NOTE: the vendor reportedly disputes the significance of this issue because wp_create_nonce operates as intended, even if it is arguably inconsistent with certain CSRF protection details advocated by external organizations.
6 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.
7 CVE-2012-0782 79 1 XSS 2012-01-30 2012-01-31
4.3
None Remote Medium Not required None Partial None
** DISPUTED ** Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in wp-admin/setup-config.php in the installation component in WordPress 3.3.1 and earlier allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the (1) dbhost, (2) dbname, or (3) uname parameter. NOTE: the vendor disputes the significance of this issue; also, it is unclear whether this specific XSS scenario has security relevance.
8 CVE-2011-4899 1 Exec Code Sql XSS 2012-01-30 2012-01-31
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
** DISPUTED ** wp-admin/setup-config.php in the installation component in WordPress 3.3.1 and earlier does not ensure that the specified MySQL database service is appropriate, which allows remote attackers to configure an arbitrary database via the dbhost and dbname parameters, and subsequently conduct static code injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via (1) an HTTP request or (2) a MySQL query. NOTE: the vendor disputes the significance of this issue; however, remote code execution makes the issue important in many realistic environments.
9 CVE-2011-4898 200 1 +Info 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 generates different error messages for requests lacking a dbname parameter depending on whether the MySQL credentials are valid, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct brute-force attacks via a series of requests with different uname and pwd parameters. NOTE: the vendor disputes the significance of this issue; also, it is unclear whether providing intentionally vague error messages during installation would be reasonable from a usability perspective.
