Updated wordpress package fixes multiple vulnerabilitiesPublication date: 06 Jun 2014
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
CVE: CVE-2014-0165 , CVE-2014-0166
Updated wordpress package fixes security vulnerabilities: WordPress before 3.7.2 allows remote authenticated users to publish posts by leveraging the Contributor role, related to wp-admin/includes/post.php and wp-admin/includes/class-wp-posts-list-table.php (CVE-2014-0165). The wp_validate_auth_cookie function in wp-includes/pluggable.php in WordPress before 3.7.2 does not properly determine the validity of authentication cookies, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain access via a forged cookie (CVE-2014-0166). The wordpress package has been updated to version 3.9.1, fixing these and other issues.
