Alarming WordPress Security Vulnerabilities

beNi released 3 alarming vulnerabilities in the popular WordPress blog platform

  1. Cross Site Scripting – it didn’t work for me
  2. Forced Redirectit worked for me
  3. Directory Traversal – n /a

Due to the really huge install base, I really hope that the folks at wordpress.org issue a patch quickly to address these vulnerabilities. Update : It sems that the site hosting the proof of concept exploits is down for maintenance.(thanks leion)
