        A cross-site scripting vulnerability when processing shortcode tags
        has been discovered.

        attributes.
    
    CVE-2015-5715
    
        A vulnerability has been discovered, allowing users without proper
        permissions to publish private posts and make them sticky.
    
        The issue has been fixed in the XMLRPC code of Wordpress by not
        allowing private posts to be sticky.
    
    Other issue(s)
    
       A cross-site scripting vulnerability in user list tables has been
       discovered.

    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed
    in later update.
