phpBB 2.0.11 released - Critical update

Postby dhn » Thu Nov 18, 2004 10:36 pm

We have now released phpBB 2.0.11, the "damn, it's cold and my fur won't grow back" edition. This fixes a number of issues, introduces visual confirmation as standard and addresses a potentially serious exploit. We encourage everyone to update as soon as possible. We also encourage any hosting providers out there to contact and/or update users copies of phpBB to this latest version. Please spread news of this release far and wide.

Changes since 2.0.10
  • Fixed unsetting global vars - Matt Kavanagh
  • Fixed XSS vulnerability in username handling - AnthraX101
  • Fixed not confirmed sql injection in username handling - warmth
  • Added check for empty topic id in topic_review function
  • Added visual confirmation mod to code base


As with previous releases three different packages are available:

  • Full Package
    Contains entire phpBB2 source and English language package
  • Changed Files Only
    Contains only those files changed from previous versions of phpBB. Please note this archive contains changed files for each previous release
  • Patch Files
    Contains patch compatible patches from the previous versions of phpBB.

Select whichever package is most suitable for you.

Please ensure you read the INSTALL and README documents in docs/ before proceeding with installation or updates!.

Note to 2.0.3 users intending to use the patch file version

Users of 2.0.3 intending to use the patch version may (but not necessarily will) need to run fixfiles.sh (found in the contrib/ directory with the downloaded archive) before patching.

We recommend that all 2.0.3 users do a "dry run" patch first to see whether this you need to use this fix. To do this append --dry-run to the patch command, e.g. patch -cl -p1 --dry-run < phpBB-2.0.3_to_2.0.11.patch. This will prevent any permanent changes being made to your installation. If you experience numerous (literally dozens and dozens) of hunk failed messages this applies to you.

To correct this problem go to your phpBB root directory, copy the fixfiles.sh to this location, chmod u+x fixfiles.sh and type ./fixfiles.sh. This will strip windows style carriage returns present in the 2.0.3 source.
