Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:103
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : wordpress
Date : May 16, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
wordpress:

WordPress before 3.7.2 and 3.8.x before 3.8.2 allows remote
authenticated users to publish posts by leveraging the
Contributor role, related to wp-admin/includes/post.php and
wp-admin/includes/class-wp-posts-list-table.php (CVE-2014-0165).

The wp_validate_auth_cookie function in wp-includes/pluggable.php
in WordPress before 3.7.2 and 3.8.x before 3.8.2 does not properly
determine the validity of authentication cookies, which makes it
easier for remote attackers to obtain access via a forged cookie
(CVE-2014-0166).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
