    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in wordpress, a web blogging
    tool. They would allow remote attackers to hijack victims'
    credentials, access sensitive information, execute arbitrary commands,
    bypass read and post restrictions, or mount denial-of-service attacks.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1+dfsg-1+deb8u12.
    
    For the testing (stretch) and unstable (sid) distributions, these
    problems have been fixed in version 4.7.1+dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
