Update Information:

WordPress 3.5.2 is now available. This is the second maintenance release of
3.5, fixing 12 bugs. This is a security release for all previous versions
and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately. The
WordPress security team resolved seven security issues, and this release
also contains some additional security hardening.

The security fixes included:
- Blocking server-side request forgery attacks, which could potentially
enable an attacker to gain access to a site.
- Disallow contributors from improperly publishing posts, reported by
Konstantin Kovshenin, or reassigning the post’s authorship, reported by
Luke Bryan.
- An update to the SWFUpload external library to fix cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities. Reported by mala and Szymon Gruszecki. (Developers: More
on SWFUpload here.)
- Prevention of a denial of service attack, affecting sites using
password-protected posts.
- An update to an external TinyMCE library to fix a cross-site scripting
vulnerability. Reported by Wan Ikram.
- Multiple fixes for cross-site scripting. Reported by Andrea Santese and
Rodrigo.
- Avoid disclosing a full file path when a upload fails. Reported by Jakub
Galczyk.
