** DISPUTED ** wp-admin/setup-config.php in the installation component in
WordPress 3.3.1 and earlier does not ensure that the specified MySQL
database service is appropriate, which allows remote attackers to configure
an arbitrary database via the dbhost and dbname parameters, and
subsequently conduct static code injection and cross-site scripting (XSS)
attacks via (1) an HTTP request or (2) a MySQL query. NOTE: the vendor
disputes the significance of this issue; however, remote code execution
makes the issue important in many realistic environments.
