    Debian Bug     : 670124
    
    Several vulnerabilities were identified in Wordpress, a web blogging
    tool.  As the CVEs were allocated from releases announcements and
    specific fixes are usually not identified, it has been decided to
    upgrade the Wordpress package to the latest upstream version instead
    of backporting the patches.
    
    This means extra care should be taken when upgrading, especially when
    using third-party plugins or themes, since compatibility may have been
    impacted along the way.  We recommend that users check their install
    before doing the upgrade.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), those problems have been fixed in
    version 3.3.2+dfsg-1~squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), those problems have been fixed in version 3.3.2+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
