Description Ville Skyttä 2007-04-10 18:57:27 UTC
"WordPress 2.1.2, and probably earlier, allows remote authenticated users with
the contributor role to bypass intended access restrictions and invoke the
publish_posts functionality, which can be used to "publish a previously saved
"SQL injection vulnerability in xmlrpc.php in WordPress 2.1.2, and probably
earlier, allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary SQL commands via
a string parameter value in an XML RPC mt.setPostCategories method call, related
to the post_id variable."

All active FE releases have 2.1.3-RC2 which seems affected.  2.1.3 final is said
to fix these issues.
