WordPress GBK or Big5 character sets SQL injection
|wordpress-gbk-big5-sql-injection (38959)||Medium Risk|
WordPress is vulnerable to SQL injection. If "exact" and "sentence" are enabled, a remote attacker with knowledge of the database table prefix could send specially-crafted SQL statements to the index.php script using the "s" parameter. If DB_CHARSET in the wp-config.php script is set to the GBK or Big5 character set, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to view, add, modify or delete information in the back-end database.
Upgrade to the latest version of WordPress (2.5 or later), available from the WordPress Web site. See References.
