    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in wordpress, a web blogging
    tool, which could allow remote attackers to compromise a site via
    cross-site scripting, bypass restrictions, obtain sensitive
    revision-history information, or mount a denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1+dfsg-1+deb8u9.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
