    Debian Bug     : 803100
    
    The patch applied for CVE-2015-5622 in DSA-3332-1 contained a faulty
    hunk. This update corrects that problem. For reference, the relevant
    part of the original advisory text follows.
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in Wordpress, the popular
    blogging engine.
    
    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.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.1+dfsg-1+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
