    The robustness of the shortcodes HTML tags filter has been

    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
