Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains multiple PHP scripts that are prone to
SQL injection and cross-site scripting attacks.

Description :

The version of WordPress installed on the remote host suffers from
multiple vulnerabilities:

- A SQL Injection Vulnerability
WordPress fails to properly sanitize user input passed
via the 'tb_id' parameter to the 'wp-trackback.php'
script before using it in database queries. This
could lead to disclosure of sensitive information or
even attacks against the underlying database.

- Multiple Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities.
A possible hacker can pass arbitrary HTML and script code
through the 's' parameter of the 'wp-admin/edit.php'
script or the 'p' parameter in the 'wp-admin/post.php'
script, thereby facilitating cross-site scripting
attacks. Note, though, that these attacks will
only be successful against administrators since the
scripts themselves are limited to administrators.
