Description

WordPress 3.5.2 is now available. This is the second maintenance release of 3.5, fixing 12 bugs. This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately. The WordPress security team resolved seven security issues, and this release also contains some additional security hardening.

The security fixes included :

  • Blocking server-side request forgery attacks, which could potentially enable an attacker to gain access to a site.

    • Disallow contributors from improperly publishing posts, reported by Konstantin Kovshenin, or reassigning the post's authorship, reported by Luke Bryan.

    • An update to the SWFUpload external library to fix cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. Reported by mala and Szymon Gruszecki. (Developers: More on SWFUpload here.)

    • Prevention of a denial of service attack, affecting sites using password-protected posts.

    • An update to an external TinyMCE library to fix a cross-site scripting vulnerability. Reported by Wan Ikram.

    • Multiple fixes for cross-site scripting. Reported by Andrea Santese and Rodrigo.

    • Avoid disclosing a full file path when a upload fails. Reported by Jakub Galczyk.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
