WordPress 4.7.1 Hosting in EuropeFrom the WordPress 4.7.1 release post: WordPress versions 4.7 and earlier are affected by eight security issues:
- Remote code execution (RCE) in PHPMailer – No specific issue appears to affect WordPress or any of the major plugins we investigated but, out of an abundance of caution, we updated PHPMailer in this release. This issue was reported to PHPMailer by Dawid Golunski and Paul Buonopane.
- The REST API exposed user data for all users who had authored a post of a public post type. WordPress 4.7.1 limits this to only post types which have specified that they should be shown within the REST API.
- Cross-site scripting (XSS) via the plugin name or version header on
- Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) bypass via uploading a Flash file.
- Cross-site scripting (XSS) via theme name fallback.
