Subject: CVE Request: Wordpress: 4.7.2 security release: unauthorized bypass,
 SQL injection, cross-site scripting issues


Wordpress has released 4.7.2 as security release. Quoting from the
advisory there seem to be three issues fixed (full quoting for the
list archives):

WordPress 4.7.2 is now available. This is a security release for all previous
versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

WordPress versions 4.7.1 and earlier are affected by three security issues:

 1/ The user interface for assigning taxonomy terms in Press This is shown to
users who do not have permissions to use it. Reported by David Herrera of Alley

 2/ WP_Query is vulnerable to a SQL injection (SQLi) when passing unsafe data.
WordPress core is not directly vulnerable to this issue, but we’ve added
hardening to prevent plugins and themes from accidentally causing a
vulnerability. Reported by Mo Jangda (batmoo).

 3/ A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was discovered in the posts list
table. Reported by Ian Dunn of the WordPress Security Team.

Could you please assign CVEs for those issues?
