The WordPress project has just released a new version due to a security release. WordPress versions 4.2.3 and earlier are affected by six issues, including three cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and a potential SQL injection that could be used to compromise a site. 

It also includes a fix for a potential timing side-channel attack and prevents an attacker from locking a post from being edited.

In addition to the security fixes, WordPress 4.2.4 contains fixes for 4 bugs from 4.2.3. You can find more information at the Release Notes.
