    Debian Bug     : 744018
    
    The update for wordpress in DSA 2901 caused a regression in the Quick
    Drafts functionality. This update corrects that problem. For reference,
    the original advisory text follows.
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Wordpress, a web blogging
    tool. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    CVE-2014-0165
    
        A user with a contributor role, using a specially crafted
        request, can publish posts, which is reserved for users of the
        next-higher role.
    
    CVE-2014-0166
    
        Jon Cave of the WordPress security team discovered that the
        wp_validate_auth_cookie function in wp-includes/pluggable.php does
        not properly determine the validity of authentication cookies,
        allowing a remote attacker to obtain access via a forged cookie.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.6.1+dfsg-1~deb6u3.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.6.1+dfsg-1~deb7u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.8.3+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
