WordPress 4.7.2 Security Release

WordPress 4.7.2 is now available, and is a security release for all previous versions of WordPress.

We strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

WordPress versions 4.7.1 and earlier are affected by three security issues:

  1. The user interface for assigning taxonomy terms in Press This is shown to users who do not have permissions to use it.
  2. WP_Query is vulnerable to a SQL injection (SQLi) when passing unsafe data. WordPress core is not directly vulnerable to this issue, but we’ve added hardening to prevent plugins and themes from accidentally causing a vulnerability.
  3. A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was discovered in the posts list table.
