 Hey there,

 Thanks for your report. This seems like a duplicate of #37359, but yet I
 haven't been able to reproduce this in a unit test.

 However, I can see that `url_to_postid()` doesn't really check if the
 domain matches, so there is a potential for false positives. Such a check
 might need to be added to `wp_filter_pre_oembed_result()` or
 `url_to_postid()` directly.
