wordpress 472

Do you have a Wordpress CMS website? Then you're familiar with the need for regular security and maintenance updates.

WordPress 4.7.2 is now available. This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

WordPress versions 4.7.1 and earlier are affected by some issues:

  • The user interface for assigning taxonomy terms in Press This is shown to users who do not have permissions to use it.
  • WP_Query is vulnerable to a SQL injection (SQLi) when passing unsafe data. WordPress core is not directly vulnerable to this issue, but we’ve added hardening to prevent plugins and themes from accidentally causing a vulnerability.
  • A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was discovered in the posts list table.
  • An unauthenticated privilege escalation vulnerability was discovered in a REST API endpoint.
