Vister Twister

After travelling back from holiday – I checked my blog to see what the latest stats were. Thats when I noticed it wasn’t resolving.

After some research I noted …

Windy Road Vistered Little Theme Skin Parameter Directory Traversal Vulnerability

Vistered Little is prone to a directory-traversal vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

An attacker can exploit this vulnerability to retrieve arbitrary files from the vulnerable system in the context of the webserver process. Information obtained may aid in further attacks.

This issue affects Vistered Little 1.6a; other versions may also be affected.

So an update to WordPress itself followed by an update to the latest theme and I’m now todying up some other items I’ve noticed are not working as normal.
