Subject: CVE request: WordPress 3.1.4 (and 3.2 Release Candidate 3)


Vulnerabilities fixed in WordPress 3.1.4[1] does not yet have CVE identifiers. As far as I can tell there is three different issues[2][3][4]. Details of issue OSVDB:73721 from Andrew Nacin below:

Using specially crafted requests under certain conditions, users without the ability to write with unfiltered HTML could add some to a post, and could update posts where they did not have a permission to do so. The relevant changeset is:

2: WordPress Unspecified Access Restriction Bypass
3: WordPress wp-admin/edit-tags.php Multiple Parameter SQL Injection
4: WordPress wp-admin/link-manager.php Multiple Parameter SQL Injection

Please note that these need to be CVE-2011-XXXX, thanks.
