A number of vulnerabilities have been identified in WordPress prior

The vendor has provided the following details regarding these
"This is a security release for all previous versions and we
strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.
WordPress versions 4.2.2 and earlier are affected by a cross-site
scripting vulnerability, which could allow users with the
Contributor or Author role to compromise a site. This was initially
reported by Jon Cave and fixed by Robert Chapin, both of the
WordPress security team, and later reported by Jouko PynnÃ¶nen.
We also fixed an issue where it was possible for a user with
Subscriber permissions to create a draft through Quick Draft.
Reported by Netanel Rubin from Check Point Software Technologies."

correct these issues.
