    Debian Bug     : 942459
    Several vulnerabilities in wordpress, a web blogging tool, have been
        Server Side Request Forgery (SSRF) vulnerability because URL
        validation does not consider the interpretation of a name as a
        series of hex characters.
       Server Side Request Forgery (SSRF) vulnerability was reported in
       wp_validate_redirect(). Normalize the path when validating the
       location for relative URLs.
       Unauthenticated viewing of certain content (private or draft posts)
       is possible because the static query property is mishandled.
        Wordpress does not properly consider type confusion during
        validation of the referer in the admin pages. This vulnerability
        affects the check_admin_referer() WordPress function.
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
