Description Tomas Hoger 2008-02-05 08:14:48 EST
WordPress 2.3.3 was released with following announcement:

  WordPress 2.3.3 is an urgent security release. A flaw was found in our
  XML-RPC implementation such that a specially crafted request would allow
  any valid user to edit posts of any other user on that blog.


Upstream bug report:

Some PoCs are already available publicly:

This is being actively exploited.  My F8 server running 2.3.2 was hit by a
spammer using this hole today.
Comment 3 John Berninger 2008-02-09 00:14:40 EST
Building new packages for F-7, F-8, -devel.  Will push as security updates as
soon as they complete.
Comment 4 Bryan O'Sullivan 2008-02-09 00:20:59 EST
Thanks. I was about to do that myself when I found you'd already started.
Comment 5 John Berninger 2008-02-09 00:37:39 EST
Packages rebuilt, awaiting security team approval for final push to stable repos
Comment 6 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-02-09 06:47:03 EST
John: You submitted the update for testing. I will assume that you meant it for
stable and push it there.
Comment 7 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-02-09 06:47:35 EST
Oh, pardon me, I lied above :} Approved though.
