    Debian Bug     : 784603
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been found in Wordpress, the popular
    blogging engine.
    
    CVE-2015-3429
    
        The file example.html in the Genericicons icon font package and
        twentyfifteen Wordpress theme allowed for cross site scripting.
    
    CVE-2015-5622
    
        The robustness of the shortcodes HTML tags filter has been
        improved. The parsing is a bit more strict, which may affect
        your installation.
    
    CVE-2015-5623
    
        A cross site scripting vulnerability allowed users with the
        Contributor or Author role to elevate their privileges.
    
    The oldstable distribution (wheezy) is only affected by CVE-2015-5622.
    This less critical issue will be fixed at a later time.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1+dfsg-1+deb8u2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.2.3+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
