CVE-2017-14990

Priority
Description
WordPress 4.8.2 stores cleartext wp_signups.activation_key values (but
stores the analogous wp_users.user_activation_key values as hashes), which
might make it easier for remote attackers to hijack unactivated user
accounts by leveraging database read access (such as access gained through
an unspecified SQL injection vulnerability).
