This release fixes a possible denial of service issue in PHP’s XML processing.

WordPress 3.9.2 also contains other security changes:

  • Fixes a possible but unlikely code execution when processing widgets (WordPress is not affected by default).
  • Prevents information disclosure via XML entity attacks in the external GetID3 library.
  • Adds protections against brute attacks against CSRF tokens.
  • Contains some additional security hardening, like preventing cross-site scripting that could be triggered only by administrators.

For more information on all of the changes, see the release notes or consult the list of changes.
