 I have Fresh installed WordPress with the Latest version. I have created a
 post let's say with the name of "Testing Post" and the URL of the post is:

 It works fine. But when i append a numeric keywords at the end of
 permalinks as mentioned below:
 1. https://dev-wordpress-core.pantheonsite.io/testing-post/1000/
 2. https://dev-wordpress-core.pantheonsite.io/testing-post/100000000000/
 3. https://dev-wordpress-core.pantheonsite.io/testing-post/719/

 In these cases, page should return 404 but it's not happening. It's
 returning 200 with the duplicate content of https://dev-wordpress-

 Whereas if there is any alphabetic keyword then it returns the 404 as
 expected. Like:
 1. https://dev-wordpress-core.pantheonsite.io/testing-post/a/
 2. https://dev-wordpress-core.pantheonsite.io/testing-post/1000000a/

 Permalink setting is set to "Post name". There is no plugin installed and
 Twenty Seventeen Theme is used to check this issue.

 It is a critical issue as Google starts reporting the duplicate content on
 the pages.
