This morning I learned WordPress has responded to the calls for fixing the bug mentioned in the post below and has released an update.

“WordPress is urging users to update their software after the company fixed a critical cross-site scripting flaw in its popular publishing platform.

WordPress yesterday released version 4.2.1 of its software to address a critical stored cross-site scripting vulnerability discovered by Jouko Pynnönen, a researcher at Finnish security firm Klikki.

“This is a critical security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately,” WordPress said.”
