WordPress 'paged' Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability (2.0.2 - 2.0.5)

Description

WordPress is prone to an SQL injection vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before using it in an SQL query. A successful exploit could allow an attacker to compromise the application, access or modify data, or exploit vulnerabilities in the underlying database implementation. WordPress version 2.0.5 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.

Remediation

Update to WordPress version 2.1 or latest
