Description

Certain versions of Wordpress leak filesystem path information when scripts are directly invoked. As a result, a remote attacker may potentially use this information to facilitate other more complex attacks against the system.

Solution(s)

  • wordpress-upgrade-1_5_1

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
