    Debian Bug     : 916403
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Wordpress, a web blogging
    tool. They allowed remote attackers to perform various Cross-Side
    Scripting (XSS) and PHP injections attacks, delete files, leak
    potentially sensitive data, create posts of unauthorized types, or
    cause denial-of-service by application crash.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.7.5+dfsg-2+deb9u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
