More information:

The wordpress package released in DSA-5279-1 had incorrect dependencies that could not be satisfied in Debian stable: this update corrects the problem. For reference, the original advisory text is provided here again:

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Wordpress, a web blogging tool. They allowed remote attackers to perform SQL injection, create open redirects, bypass authorization access, or perform Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) or Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks.

For the stable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed in version 5.7.8+dfsg1-0+deb11u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your wordpress packages.
