    Debian Bug     : 794548 794560
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in Wordpress, the popular
    blogging engine.
    
    CVE-2015-2213
    
        SQL Injection allowed a remote attacker to compromise the site.
    
    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. This is the corrected version of the patch
        that needed to be reverted in DSA 3328-2.
    
    CVE-2015-4730
    
        A potential timing side-channel attack in widgets.
    
    CVE-2015-5731
    
        An attacker could lock a post that was being edited.
    
    CVE-2015-5732
    
        Cross site scripting in a widget title allows an attacker to
        steal sensitive information.
    
    CVE-2015-5734
    
        Fix some broken links in the legacy theme preview.
    
    The issues were discovered by Marc-Alexandre Montpas of Sucuri,
    Helen Hou-Sandí of the WordPress security team, Netanel Rubin of Check Point,
    Ivan Grigorov, Johannes Schmitt of Scrutinizer and Mohamed A. Baset.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1+dfsg-1+deb8u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.2.4+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
