Several security vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wordpress, a popular content management framework. Possible SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or facilitate the injection of client-side scripts.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version 5.0.18+dfsg1-0+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
