CVE ID         : CVE-2018-10100 CVE-2018-10102
Debian Bug     : 895034

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in wordpress, a web blogging
tool. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following issues.

CVE-2018-10100

   The redirection URL for the login page was not validated or sanitized
   if forced to use HTTPS.

CVE-2018-10102

  The version string was not escaped in the get_the_generator function,
  and could lead to cross-site scripting (XSS) in a generator tag.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
3.6.1+dfsg-1~deb7u21.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
