Synopsis
========

WordPress is vulnerable to an SQL injection vulnerability.

Background
==========

WordPress is a PHP and MySQL based content management and publishing
system.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package             /  Vulnerable  /                   Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  www-apps/wordpress      <= 1.5.2                         >= 2.0.1

Description
===========

Patrik Karlsson reported that WordPress 1.5.2 makes use of an
insufficiently filtered User Agent string in SQL queries related to
comments posting. This vulnerability was already fixed in the
2.0-series of WordPress.

Impact
======

An attacker could send a comment with a malicious User Agent parameter,
resulting in SQL injection and potentially in the subversion of the
WordPress database. This vulnerability wouldn't affect WordPress sites
which do not allow comments or which require that comments go through a
moderator.

Workaround
==========

Disable or moderate comments on your WordPress blogs.

Resolution
==========

All WordPress users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/wordpress-2.0.1"
