    Debian Bug     : 837090
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in wordpress, a web blogging tool,
    which could allow remote attackers to compromise a site via cross-site
    scripting, cross-site request forgery, path traversal, or bypass restrictions.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1+dfsg-1+deb8u10.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
