Xataface Security Release 1.3rc5 (Critical Bugfix)

Postby shannah » Wed Aug 03, 2011 1:00 pm

Xataface 1.3rc5 was released today and is available for download on Sourceforge:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/datafa ... ce-1.3rc5/

It patches a critical security vulnerability.

(Note that the above bug report includes a number of issues. Only one of them was identified as a current vulnerability).

All installs of the 1.3.x branch should be updated to this version. If you are working off the trunk of the SVN repository, you should update to revision 2509 or later.

Fixes for Older Versions

Users of the 1.2.x branch should update to 1.2.7:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/datafa ... ace-1.2.7/

Users of the 1.1.x branch (PHP 4) should update to version 1.1.6
https://sourceforge.net/projects/datafa ... ace-1.1.6/

FYI, I am getting an Access Denied error when trying to view the bug report URL provided in this announcement. I am able to log into the bug tracker but still cannot access this report.

That link doesn't look like it goes to the bug report... I can't seem to find the original report just now... I'll keep looking and post it when I find it.
