As far as I watch The Tor Project, there are currently no IP bypass bugs
in TBB (Tor Browser Bundle).

IP bypass bugs are unfortunately not the only means of de-anonymization.
In general, the more knowledge one has and the more effort someone puts

I am not aware of any general anonymity guide/book (specific to wordpress).

Tails, JonDo and Whonix however have up to date documentation, which is
always a bit specific to those projects, covers general anonymity
instructions nonetheless.
