SQL Injection in WordPress 2.1.1

iconUpgrading to wordpress 2.1.1 was urgent, but we still have SQL injections, path disclosures and cross site scripting problems in this version! My colleague Sebastian Krause has some examples:

a) Path disclosure (should be fixed in 2.0.2?):


b) SQL injections in search form. Put a „,“ or „+“ or “ “ in the search box or use this URL (this is new in 2.1.1):


c) XSS 🙁 :


d) SQL injection in ‚where‘ clause (should be fixed earlier?):


There is a ticket with just one bug open http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3722 based on the original post


there are even more vulns in wp-admin.php: http://www.fadetoblack.ch/advisories/

and some AdminPanel CSRF/XSS issues: http://seclists.org/bugtraq/2007/Feb/0494.html
