Title: YaBB SE 1.5.2
Post by: [Unknown] on April 22, 2003, 02:18:05 AM
More security vulnerabilities were just found... and so we fixed them and made 1.5.2.  (and added another feature ;).)

Please note that no other derivative version of YaBB SE (pfaBB, YaBBi SE, etc.) yet has these fixes, and as such you should attempt to apply them to any version you might have.

It should be easy for you to upgrade your forum to 1.5.2.... you have many options:


http://www.yabbse.org/packages/bugs


You can find an update from the previous bugfix here:
http://www.yabbse.org/unknown/mods/yabbse_1-5-2_update.mod
And an upgrade from without the 1.5.1 bugfix here:
http://www.yabbse.org/unknown/mods/yabbse_1-5-2_upgrade.mod[/list]
Thank you,

Could you please provide the YaBB SE 1.5.2 language file changes.

Just two language tags were added:

$txt['jsvalidate1'] = 'The Subject field or the Message Body was not filled out. It is required.';
$txt['jsvalidate2'] = 'The Subject field, the Message Body, or Recipient field was not filled out. It is required.';

i believe because the fix is really small, only a few files were changed, try doing the Detailed Version Check in your admin center

i'm afraid not
however, most mods here are 1.5.1 compliant already,


For those of us running Release Candidates of 1.5.1, do I need to first update to 1.5.1 Final and then again update to 1.5.2? Have I understood things correctly then?
yes, u need to because the full 1.5.2 package hasn't been released yet

I would like to see a list of altered codefiles from 1.5.1. RC beta 44 till the current version, so I can get the full package and change all manually.

I really like to keep my current changes. Anyway my db is already different.

Errr.... yes it has.  The full package is on Sourceforge, as are the changed files, safe mode, and upgrade from 1.5.0 packages.

Kingshakur, long story short.... every file was changed.
You will need to upgrade and apply newer versions of the mods.

For anyone using any previous versions or "derivatives" of YaBB SE (yabb.it, yabb.nl, etc) you should upgrade and make these changes as it exists in anyone using earlier versions of SE.

Ok... I'm a tad confused... I am running 1.51 final... I assume I should run the second thing (1.51 to 1.52 upgrade) first and then the "bugfixes" package...
Title: Re:YaBB SE 1.5.2
Post by: oldiesmann on April 22, 2003, 09:33:03 AM
Nevermind... I found the bugfix pak out here and installed that... Now before I go install the other thing, I gotta go figure out why it can't find a certain line in InstantMessage.php (most likely because I've got the AdvIM mod installed along with a couple of other IM improvements...)

Title: Re:YaBB SE 1.5.2

With 1.5.1 I am having problems adding attachments (I use Safe mode), I get this error:

Post by: oldiesmann on April 22, 2003, 10:48:20 AM
Ok... I figured out what the problem was with that string in InstantMessage.php - It was a simple fix: The version of InstantMessage.php I have uses $scripturl in that line already and it was looking for $cgi. I still have to get it to accept that fix - everytime I download the pak to the folder and then try to replace it with the edited version, I get a message about "permission denied" and then it acts like it copied the new version, but it doesn't pick up the changes...
Title: Re:YaBB SE 1.5.2
Post by: oldiesmann on April 22, 2003, 11:05:53 AM
Ok... I figured out why it wasn't appearing to pick up changes... there's a similar line in post.php and I think I was replacing that line with the one from instantmessage.php... Anyway, other than an error due to not having file permissions set right for dutch.lng, it installed fine... I'm installing the rest of this mod manually...

Didn't change that, don't worry about it.

Look closely to the language file changes for the new feature ::).

CokeCan, I'm not sure but it seems as if you have permission problems.  You might try uploading your sources all again.

Since YaBB SE 1.5.1 Final wasn't so final, perhaps the YaBB SE 1.5.2 Finnish comment is a sign from above!  ;D

Guys top work, the upgrades are done on all three of my boards, but can I ask a q? if I am asking in the wrong place you can hit me later, but....

Is cookie handling done differently? I have many users who were on a 1.4 board and they cannot stay logged in, I personally am having no problems, but I just wondered if anything major on the cookie handling side changed that you could tell me about to see if this is something I can fix....

This has indeed been changed in 1.5.1. The Settings.php file should now contain only $cookiename. In this cookie all settings are packed. Basically the cookie system still works the same as it did, only using a different name.

We did.... and didn't get a repsonse soon enough.  Considering the security risk, and the fact that we had already informed the party who found the hole that it would be fixed that day, we had to get it released post haste.

As it was, I had to search for a person who spoke Italian, get the translation done, and release the packages with time for beta testing.  The process would have been much simpler if past differences could have been put aside, especially considering the fact that four sentences aren't anything that takes time to translate...

Perhaps next time we can work together better such that proper time can be alotted for beta testing.

I do, however, apologize for the incovenience to any who must apply this patch.

Thank you,

As one of the people that helped [Unknown] get some of the translation done, when one's usual resources aren't available, you do what you can to get a project done, especially if promised with a deadline.

You also need to understand that occasionally mistakes ARE made, after all, coders ARE human, and humans are prone and certainly entitled to make mistakes.  Rather than blasting someone, why not take a moment and thank someone, then kindly provide a nudge for help and/or fixes.  That little thank you will go one hell of a long way, trust me.

To [Unknown], Joseph, Jeff and the rest of the Mod Team/Devel team/Admin team, thank you.  This is one person that's happy to have 5 forums (so far) running YaBB SE.

Unknown, noone asked us to translate that line... Only Andrea asked on our forum, and we read forum during day...

If it was urgent, you can contact me or someone of italian team on ICQ. I added you, altough I haven't received a response of it.

So, next time you need something urgent, can call me on ICQ, MSN or email. Or IM on yabb.it forum. There are many way to talk with a member of italian team.

I hope next time we'll work together :)

However, the important thing is that you've corrected italian lng.

what must i do to go to 1.5.2?

Ok something funny is going on with the cookies, I have asked my guys to do the following....

Q) I enter my username and password and am told I am logged in, then when the page reloads it now asks that I login again, what do I do ?

A) In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
Click the Privacy tab, and then click Edit.
In Address of Web site, type the complete address of the Web site for which you want to specify custom settings. In this case,
*MY SITE DOMAIN*.

If that does not work for you and you are still having problems
then please do the following....

In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
Click the Security tab, and then click Trusted Sites, once there click the button labelled 'sites', then type the following in the box *MY SITE DOMAIN*. Then click the add button, also before closing that box pleasemake sure that the requirement for HTTPS is NOT ticked.

This means it is a cookie issue with your local settings, the cookie in question is currently called *YOUR PC USER ID*@yabbSE. If you can see this cookie when you do a search of your machine including searching the hidden files or folders then it should be working, if on the other hand your machine does not show this cookie then lower your privacy tab slightly so that the cookiecan be read and written.


These are what I have suggested and I have asked them to check the times, but they still cannot log in and stay in, they login and the very first click they do logs them out again, anyone got any idea???

Its drivin me nuts all the emails I am getting.

If you have 1.5.1 and haven't touched it: upgrade.
Otherwise you've used the bugfix: update.

Raxiel, I was uner the understanding that you had been asked.  If this is not the case, I apologize.... hopefully we will be able to make it work better in the future.  I will be updating the packages when I get home.

Fsr Forum, looks like you'll have to manually download the package and upload it to your forum's Packages directory.

Whew!  Ten major tweaks to adjust layout to my (detail oriented) perfections and five hours of checking to make sure my mod looks nice with the new set up.  VERY nice.  Users from Netscape 3 (don't ask) can post, and everyone seems happy.

LOL, sure, I spent like 6 weeks working on javascript popups and a single security hole.  As you can tell, I'm a *really* slow programmer... :P.

At last count, it had 17 new features, (plus bug fixes, etc.) and another 15 planned features or so....

And, uhhh... don't even ask for a boardmod/YaBBpak version of the upgrade for this version.  Seeing as I've rewritten every single last file from top to bottom.... that isn't gonna work :P.

In my YaBB SE 1.5.2  in "View error log file" only i can see one record, althought that happen anymore, and the mysql contains only one record. That means, only show one record, because mysql only has one record, because mysql don't log ALL THE ERRORS ¿why that?

How i can fix that?

So i think something is working bad.

¿ In the update or upgrade did you modify log_errors or something like that ?

Well, i have the last Errors.php (version 1.5.1) but i was thinking and perhaps i make a mistake.

I did an uPGrade not an uPDate, and i has yabb 1.5.1.

Maybe when i run the upgrade.php it modify something wrong in mysql table log_errors?

The rest works fine, but log_errors only log one error, the fisrt error happened, and although there have been more, but not them logged.

Thank you in advande.

Perhaps not too soon - my Chronicles site was hacked about an hour later.

The hacker appears just to have replaced my homepage index.php file with the hacker's own index.html file. The forum was untouched.

I guess that means my Chronicles site must be important, now?  :-\

If you were running 1.5.2 then there are no known security holes in YaBBSE.  Also sounds like some script kiddie who wouldn't go out on a limb to pour over the code and find a hole.  Ultimitly the access logs will tell you what happened.

If I upgrade from 1.5.0 to 1.5.2 will my 1.5.0 still be able to use the database? I've done some mods to the yabbse code and would want to make sure I got 1.5.2 running smoothly before doing the change over....

It appears to be in my own IP range, so I'm wondering if there's a command somewhere in the updated files trying to open the wrong file name?  ???

Yes, ALWAYS backup first.

I think you can use the upgrade package to go from 1.5.0 to 1.5.2.  If not then first upgrade to 1.5.1.

Every update/upgrade/whatever I make, I have to manually go through all sources to remove 100s of <font size="2"> and such.
After all, that's what this "new" thing out there is for, css !!
Where can I get a complete mod package, listing all changes that needs to be made to all sources?
I wanna do this update/upgrade manually so that I don't have to do the font thing all over again.
It's not just font size="2", its also font size=\"2\" and so on... rather hard to use search and replace to get rid of all these things, while also removing the closing font tags too, I wanna keep the closing font tags that must be there, but loose those in regards to those size attributs I'm losing.

or if you have ssh, you can backup for urself.

use this script to backup, someone passed it to me :P
Code: [Select]
#! /bin/sh

DATESTAMP=`date +%m-%d-%Y-%H%M`

#backup and tar bn_website database
mysqldump -u <YOUR USER> -p <YOUR PASSWORD> -B <DATABASE> > ./$DATESTAMP-db.sql
tar -czf ./$DATESTAMP-db.sql.tar.gz ./$DATESTAMP-db.sql
rm -f ./$DATESTAMP-db.sql

and you will backup your DB.
In case you are out of quota space... it'll display a message.

I recommend you simply use the YaBBpak file from the package server here.

Open up your YaBBpak Center, go to Download, and put:

yabbse.org Bugs
http://www.yabbse.org/packages/bugs

Under "add new server" and hit okay.  Select that server, and then pick the "upgrade" package.

Hit download and then back, back.

Go to browse packages, and select the yabbse_1-5-2_upgrade.mod.yp file.

Then just follow the okay/apply/nexts and you'll be done ;).

Hi,

I'm still using 1.50 but I'm planning to move my forum to another server anyway.
 
Do I need to do go through all the update procedures first or can I just dump my 1.50 database and use it with a freshly installed 1.52 on the new server ? (I don't know if the updates from 1.50 to 1.52 are altering the mysql database somehow)

- download 1.5.2 upgrade package
- dump the 1.5.0 database to the new server
- upload all of the old files, overwrite them with the new files in upgrade package
- run upgrade.php

I have yabbse 1.4.1 installed (http://duxcw.com/yabbse/index.html).  I also have several mods installed.  The principle ones are the speed and chat mods.  I can handle the chat mod if there is a current mod for it, but I believe the speed mod did something to the database... indexing or something like that.  I've been through this thread and most of the posts in the 1.5.1 and I am confused.  Please, briefly tell me how to upgrade to 1.5.2.  Larry

The speed mod is included in 1.5.1.

The chat mod is available for 1.5.1.

if i'm not mistaken, you can just download 1.5.2 upgrade package and use that
no need to upgrade to 1.5.1 first, since the upgrade.php is included in 1.5.2 package and there's no db update between 1.5.1 and 1.5.2

Post by: lbyard on April 26, 2003, 06:08:44 PM
Thank you… Understand, but I am starting with 1.4.1 with the speed mod installed.  Sorry, I am still confused and don't want to mess-up the database, etc. or have the forum down long...  I guess I could set the whole thing up locally on my Linux box and experiment, but that would take a lot of time...  There are probably others like myself who passed on 1.5.0/1 until things became more stable.  How does one upgrade 1.4.1 with the speed mod installed to 1.5.2?  Larry

just like i said above

it doesn't matter if u've installed the speed mod or not, since 1.5.x uses it anyway
you'll probably get some warning messages when converting the database, but u can ignore them

Hi again

I was the one who had database errors after loading the upgrade. In the end, I saved my database and re-installed from scratch. Either I made fewer dumb errors this time, or there are radical software improvements, because my board now flies!

However, I do have one query - once I am logged in, if I press the "home" icon, YaBB does not recognise that I am logged in, and says "Welcome, Guest" at the top, as it would if I were not yet logged in. If, however, I just straight to one of the boards, it sees my login status as it should - it's only when I click "home".

Anyone else notice this, or is my installation possessed?

Cheers

Okay, sorry to be a pain...  I updated to 1.5.1 by uploading all the files and running upgrade, no problem.  For 1.5.2, I just upload the files, right?  There is no "upgrade" file in the package.

The instructions are in this 9 page thread somewhere?  I must have missed it.  It seems to be working fine now, I just wanted to make sure it was okay.

I have just upgraded to 1.5.2 and all is workign good except for the fact that when people come to the site it displays Welcome guest even if they are cookied.

As soon as they click into one of the forums the welcome section shows their name and from then on in that session on the site they are logged in.

Anyone have any ideas what could be the cause of this?

Hi folks,

I've a very stupid question...I'm running 1.5.1RC1 (or similar!), I want to upgrade to 1.5.2 using the YabbPaks (this seems to easiest way of doing it.

Can someone please tell me which YabbPaks I need to get? I have the following 2 Paks -

YaBB SE 1.5.2 Upgrade
YaBB SE 1.5.2 Update (from 1.5.1 with bugfix)

Do I just install these? Doing the Upgrade first and then the Update?

I'm also assuming the YabbPak setting will update all the files it needs?

After reading through the threads I see Taildragger also was/is in my position. Rather than download the zip files and go through the rigmaroll of a manual update, I'd like to do it via the YabbPaks...as mentioned I have both the fixes for 1.5.1...do I just run then both?

I'd like to get secure ASAP just in case I get unlucky...cheers.

Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

Richard.

I think the safest way would be to go:
1.1.0 -> 1.3.0 -> 1.4.1 -> 1.5.1 -> 1.5.2

Upload and run upgrade.php of the above versions so that the database and Settings.php will be upgraded to 1.5.2. Afterwards overwrite all files (except Settings.php) with the 1.5.2 files (yabbse_1-5-2_safe.zip).

I just upgraded from 1.4.1 -> 1.5.1 -> 1.5.2. Almost everything seemed to work fine. Just one little annoying problem. Images on/off.gif are gone at the index-page. Only empty space is left and there's now harder to know if there's new messages or not. Ironically markasread.gif is still visible, maybe just to laugh at me.  :-\. I viewed the code in browser, there's just no lines to show on/off.gif, so they are not missing but seems to be missing from code totally.

Upgrade went ok, upgrade.php said on first page, though:

Code: [Select]
Error: MySQL said:

Duplicate column name 'ID_LAST_TOPIC'
Error: MySQL said:

Can't DROP 'membername'. Check that column/key exists

Second page was errorfree. Any ideas how to fix this?

One thing more, the bug was been published at SecurityFocus.com

http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/320997/2003-05-07/2003-05-13/0

I believe that the bug doesn't works, but anyway the bug was published, and perhaps the administrators could reply to SecurityFocus dot com.

Christian Land has replied and you are correct that it is not an actual security hole.  Whoever posted it did not take the time to test it.

David, you might want to update the info on that site. They don't show the Not Vulnerable versions of YaBB SE, and I know you closed those holes in later versions. This way folks viewing that site will know the current version does not have any of the vulns in them!

The problem is with how that site is designed, you can reply and it isn't shown very well.  I will try sending them an e-mail tonight letting them know it is bogus.

Language for Karma is hard coded

To be able to translate all language specific words karmaLabel, karmaApplaudLabel and karmaSmiteLabel shouldn’t be in the database but should be found in the language file instead.
If you use one database for words it would be like hard code specific language in PHP files.

Suggestion for language file:
$txt[karma1] = 'Karma:';
$txt[karma2] = 'appleud';
$txt[karma3] = 'smite:';
$txt[karma3] = 'Total Karma:';

Lo
Even with the latest Errors.php, I got a problem when I try to view the errors logged.
Code: [Select]
Unknown column 'le.ID_MEMBER' in 'on clause'
File: /home/shinmuge/www/mugendev/Sources/Errors.php
Line: 84

any ideas plz?

Using phpMyAdmin, run a repair on all tables, then optimize them.  :)

ok I found the problem.
The problem is that the table log_errors uses the membername variable, and the script is asking for the ID
Code: [Select]
yabbse_log_errors
Champ Type Attributs Null Défaut Extra
ID_ERROR   bigint(20)   Non    auto_increment  
logTime   bigint(20)   Non  0    
memberName   tinytext   Non      
IP   tinytext   Non      
url   text   Non      
message   text   Non    

and Errors.php is asking for that:
Code: [Select]
SELECT le.ID_ERROR, le.IP, le.url, IFNULL(mem.memberName, 'Guest') AS memberName, le.logTime, le.message
      FROM {$db_prefix}log_errors AS le
         LEFT JOIN {$db_prefix}members AS mem ON (mem.ID_MEMBER=le.ID_MEMBER)
      ORDER BY le.logTime;

le=log_errors table, and there is no ID_MEMBER column in log_errors

I replaced
Code: [Select]
(mem.ID_MEMBER=le.ID_MEMBER)by
Code: [Select]
(mem.memberName=le.memberName)and it worked properly.
Code: [Select]

No.  The problem is that you didn't upgrade properly, not that the table structure is wrong.
