Vulnerability Insight:
The following vulnerabilities exist:

- Authors could alter meta data to delete files that they weren't authorized to.

WordPress itself was not affected, but plugins could be in some situations.

leading to exposure of email addresses, and in some rare cases, default generated passwords.

leading to a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
