Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in Wordpress, the popular
blogging engine.

CVE-2015-5714

    A cross-site scripting vulnerability when processing shortcode tags
    has been discovered.

    The issue has been fixed by not allowing unclosed HTML elements in
    attributes.

CVE-2015-5715

    A vulnerability has been discovered, allowing users without proper
    permissions to publish private posts and make them sticky.

    The issue has been fixed in the XMLRPC code of Wordpress by not
    allowing private posts to be sticky.

Other issue(s)

   A cross-site scripting vulnerability in user list tables has been
   discovered.

   The issue has been fixed by URL-escaping email addresses in those
   user lists.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed
in later update.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.1+dfsg-1+deb8u5.

For the testing distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
in version 4.3.1+dfsg-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.3.1+dfsg-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
