Download WordPress 4.3.1: Security and Maintenance Release

Yesterday; WordPress.Org has released WordPress 4.3.1 the new Security and Maintenance WordPress Release. WordPress.Org announced that a new WordPress release is now ready to download from the official site or you can easily update your old version for WordPress 4.3.1 from your admin panel. The new release is a security release for all previous WordPress versions.

 

This release comes to fix three issues, including two cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and a potential privilege escalation.

  • WordPress 4.3 and earlier versions are vulnerable to a cross-site scripting vulnerability when processing shortcode tags (CVE-2015-5714). This WordPress security issue was reported by Shahar Tal and Netanel Rubin of Check Point.
  • Another separate cross-site scripting vulnerability was found in the user list table. This issue was reported by Ben Bidner of the WordPress security team.
  • Finally, in certain cases, users without proper permissions could publish private posts and make them sticky (CVE-2015-5715). This issue was also reported by Shahar Tal and Netanel Rubin of “Check Point”.
