WordPress Trackback tb_id Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to generate a SQL error

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to SQL
injection attacks.

Description :

The version of WordPress on the remote host fails to properly sanitize
input to the 'tb_id' parameter of the 'wp-trackback.php' script before
using it in database queries. An unauthenticated remote attacker can
leverage this issue to launch SQL injection attacks against the
affected application, including discovery of password hashes of
WordPress users.

Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that PHP's
'register_globals' setting be enabled and that the remote version of
PHP be older than 4.4.3 or 5.1.4.
