phpBB 2.0.16 released

Postby Acyd Burn » Mon Jun 27, 2005 6:14 pm

Hi everyone,

phpBB Group announces the release of phpBB 2.0.16. This release addresses some bugfixes and one critical security issue. To fix this, please apply the following change:

In viewtopic.php

Find:
Code: Select all
$message = str_replace('\"', '"', substr(@preg_replace('#(\>(((?>([^><]+|(?R)))*)\<))#se', "@preg_replace('#\b(" . str_replace('\\', '\\\\', $highlight_match) . ")\b#i', '<span style=\"color:#" . $theme['fontcolor3'] . "\"><b>\\\\1</b></span>', '\\0')", '>' . $message . '<'), 1, -1));


Replace with:
Code: Select all
$message = str_replace('\"', '"', substr(@preg_replace('#(\>(((?>([^><]+|(?R)))*)\<))#se', "@preg_replace('#\b(" . str_replace('\\', '\\\\', addslashes($highlight_match)) . ")\b#i', '<span style=\"color:#" . $theme['fontcolor3'] . "\"><b>\\\\1</b></span>', '\\0')", '>' . $message . '<'), 1, -1));


As with all new releases we urge you to update as soon as possible. You can of course find this download available on our downloads page. As per usual three packages are available to simplify your update.

  • 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!.
