Original release date: July 08, 2014
WordPress 3.8.2 has been released to address multiple vulnerabilities, one of which could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access using forged authentication cookies. WordPress 3.7.1 users will be updated to 3.7.2, which contains the same security fixes as 3.8.2. Users operating older, unsupported versions of WordPress are encouraged to upgrade to 3.8.2.
US-CERT recommends users and administrators review the WordPress Maintenance and Security Release blog and apply the necessary updates.
