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.
