WordPress Prior to 4.4.2 Open Redirection Vulnerability

WordPress is prone to an open-redirection vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

An attacker can leverage this issue by constructing a crafted URI and enticing a user to follow it. When an unsuspecting victim follows the link, they may be redirected to an attacker-controlled site; this may aid in phishing attacks. Other attacks are possible.

Versions prior to WordPress 4.4.2 are vulnerable.
