This means that any logged in user can cause a denial of service for all WP URLs by setting the “template” option to “1”. Additionally, this vulnerability can be triggered via CSRF meaning that anybody who can convince a logged in user to follow a link can also cause a denial of service. Proof of concept ================ Press the submit button in the following HTML snippet:

This will set the template option to 1 causing fatal errors for any WordPress URL. In a real attack the form could be set to autosubmit so no user interaction is required except for following a link.
