Note that this and your request are about two different wordpress releases (at first I got confused too by the version numbers, 4.1.2 != 4.2.1). > But there is as well a different stored XSS reported > http://klikki.fi/adv/wordpress2.html which seems to affect as well the > latest wordpress versions (not verified myself). This blog post seems to be about the same issue fixed in 4.2.1: it talks about comments length when inserted in the database, which is what commit  seems to fix (basically the only commit in the 4.2.1 release ). Also, both the wordpress announce and the blog post credit the vulnerability discovery to the same person. (All this to say that we need CVEs for both the 4.1.2 and the 4.2.1 releases: they fix different issues).
