Version : 4.1.30+dfsg-0+deb8u1
CVE ID : CVE-2020-11026 CVE-2020-11027 CVE-2020-11028
Debian Bug : 959391
Multiple CVE(s) were discovered in the src:wordpress package.
Files with a specially crafted name when uploaded to the
Media section can lead to script execution upon accessing
the file. This requires an authenticated user with privileges
to upload files.
A password reset link emailed to a user does not expire upon
changing the user password. Access would be needed to the email
account of the user by a malicious party for successful execution.
Some private posts, which were previously public, can result in
unauthenticated disclosure under a specific set of conditions.
A vulnerability in the stats() method of class-wp-object-cache.php
can be exploited to execute cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
