WordPress 3.5.1 also addresses the following security issues :

- A server-side request forgery vulnerability and remote port scanning using pingbacks. This vulnerability, which could potentially be used to expose information and compromise a site, affects all previous WordPress versions. This was fixed by the WordPress security team.
We'd like to thank security researchers Gennady Kovshenin and Ryan Dewhurst for reviewing our work.

- Two instances of cross-site scripting via shortcodes and post content. These issues were discovered by Jon Cave of the WordPress security team.
