DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Wordpress, which can
be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks
and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and
disclose sensitive data.

1) Certain unspecified input related to shortcodes and post content
is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can
be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's
browser session in context of an affected site.

2) Certain unspecified input related to Plupload is not properly
sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to
execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in
context of an affected site.

3) Input passed via the "sourceUri" parameter to the "pingback.ping"
XMLRPC API method is not properly sanitised before being used. This
can be exploited to e.g. disclose sensitive data.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 3.5.1.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 3.5.1.
