Security: Security Release: XOOPS 2.0.12a

Posted by: Mithrandiron 2005/6/28 14:10:00 28196 reads Just last Friday, we released XOOPS v2.0.11, but during the weekend, I had a great deal of communication with James from GulfTech Security Research, who helped me find and fix a couple of holes in the XML-RPC interface and the comment system.

Also, work done by XOOPS JP and JM2 and the zx team helped with a couple of other bugs and issues.

We therefore recommend everyone to upgrade to version 2.0.12a, available from this site.

Upgrade instructions:
1. Download patch
2. Extract patch
3. Upload patch to webserver (NOTE: ONLY upload modules/newbb/post.php if you use Newbb version 1.0)
4. Update System Module
5. That's it
