[IPS] IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update

Recommended Posts

We are releasing patches for IP.Board 3.3.x and IP.Board 3.4.x to address three cross site scripting issues recently reported to us.

IP.Board takes precaution against cross site scripting issues by ensuring sensitive forms and buttons have a unique key in them and also by ensuring that sensitive cookie data is not readable by JavaScript. However, we feel that it is in our clients' best interest to have these issues resolved.

To apply the patch
Simply download the attached zip for your IP.Board version and upload the files to your forum server. You do not need to run any scripts or the upgrade system.

IP.Board 3.4.x

Attached File ipb_34_patch.zip   28.17KB  1014 downloads

If you are an IPS Community in the Cloud client running IP.Board 3.3 or above, no further action is necessary as we have already automatically patched your account. If you are using a version older than IP.Board 3.3, you should contact support to upgrade.

If you install or upgrade to IP.Board 3.4.6 after the date and time of this post, no further action is necessary as we have already updated the main download zips.

We extend our thanks to Piotr Smaza ( https://twitter.com/evil_xorb ) for notifying us of these issues.
