WordPress 5.0.1 Dirilis dengan Banyak Penambalan Celah Keamanan

WordPress 5.0.1 Dirilis dengan Banyak Penambalan Celah Keamanan – Beberapa waktu lalu WordPress versi 5.0 dirilis. Update paling mencolok adalah pergantian editor default dari classic editor menjadi Guttenberg.

Nah, hari ini (13/12/2018), WordPress update ke versi 5.0.1. Ada beberapa perubahan minor yang dilakukan oleh tim pengembang WordPress. Namun, saya sarankan kalian tetap melakukan update karena beberapa masalah keamanan yang ditambal di versi ini.

Celah celah ini termasuk bug yang memungkinkan laman user activation diindeks oleh mesin pencari yang dapat menyebabkan username maupun email pengguna terekspos di mesin pencari. Tim Coen juga menemukan kemungkinan untuk bypass MIME type jika WordPress dijalankan di server Apache. Berikut adalah daftar security update lengkat di WordPress 5.0.1.

WordPress 5.0.1 Security Release

  • Karim El Ouerghemmi discovered that authors could alter meta data to delete files that they weren’t authorized to.
  • Simon Scannell of RIPS Technologies discovered that authors could create posts of unauthorized post types with specially crafted input.
  • Sam Thomas discovered that contributors could craft meta data in a way that resulted in PHP object injection.
  • Tim Coen discovered that contributors could edit new comments from higher-privileged users, potentially leading to a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
  • Tim Coen also discovered that specially crafted URL inputs could lead to a cross-site scripting vulnerability in some circumstances. WordPress itself was not affected, but plugins could be in some situations.
  • Team Yoast discovered that the user activation screen could be indexed by search engines in some uncommon configurations, leading to exposure of email addresses, and in some rare cases, default generated passwords.
  • Tim Coen and Slavco discovered that authors on Apache-hosted sites could upload specifically crafted files that bypass MIME verification, leading to a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Untuk update, kalian bisa melalui Dashboard admin di situs WordPress kalian, atau bisa juga download filenya di situs resmi WordPress. (yuyudhn/linuxsec)
