Can you make a clean list of security issues and the versions
Two issues in 3.1.1 are without 2011 CVE-identifiers, which are announced in here:
http://wordpress.org/news/2011/04/wordpress-3-1-1/ (April 5, 2011).
"Certain unspecified input is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to
execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site."
"The "make_clickable()" function in wp-includes/formatting.php does not properly check the URL length in comments
before passing it to the PCRE library, which can be exploited to cause a crash."
Both vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 3.1.1.
