WordPress Prior to 4.2.3 Multiple Security Vulnerabilities
WordPress is prone to the following security vulnerabilities:
1. A cross-site scripting vulnerability
2. A security-bypass vulnerability
3. Multiple security vulnerabilities
Successfully exploiting these issues may allow an attacker to bypass certain security restrictions, execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user, steal cookie-based authentication credentials, and perform certain administrative actions in the vulnerable application. This may aid in further attacks.
