Description

Certain versions of Wordpress do not properly handle user input in profile update submissions. As a result, an authenticated attacker, or a remote attacker that can register an account, can execute arbitrary PHP code on the server.

Solution(s)

  • wordpress-upgrade-2_0_3

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.
