Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple security issues have been discovered in Wordpress, a web blogging tool, resulting in denial of service or information disclosure.

More information can be found in the upstream advisory at https://wordpress.org/news/2014/08/wordpress-3-9-2/

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected wordpress, and wordpress-l10n packages.
