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.
