Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-12-02 10:52:59 UTC
An improper input sanitization flaw was found in the way Wordpress
performed trackbacks (a way to notify a website when an entry that
references it is published) maintainance. A remote attacker,
with Author-level privilege could use this flaw to conduct
SQL injection attacks (gain further access to the site, which
should be otherwise prohibited).
