What versions of YaBBSE does the security patch address? I have stable (and heavily hacked) installs of 1.3 and 1.4 on some sites. Do they need to be updated immediately, or does this security udpdate only address 1.5.x?

BTW, thank you for the email notification. I definitely appreciate hearing from the YaBBSE community regarding updates -- especially when they're security updates!  ;D

You are way behind the times.  1.3.x and 1.4.x are definitely not up to security standards... let's just say if you gave me a link I could give you my new admin account on any board below 1.5.1.....

Good to know. I guess it's time to patch those old boards then.

Thanks for the frankness.

1.5.1 was no risk (when it was released)
1.5.2 HUGE security updates and bug fixes (when it was released)
1.5.3 some additional security bugs fixes (when it was released)
1.5.4 another security bugs fixes (when it was released)
1.5.x .......

can't we see a bug-free release ?

I only like YaBB SE because it looks nice enough for me and it took about 8 seconds to install, whereas when I tried phpbb and IPB, it took a couple years (almost).

There is no such thing.  Go search security trackers for vB or phpBB2, they have just as many if not more issues then we do.

YaBBSE - 6 to 15 depending on search terms

vB - 65 results
http://www.securityfocus.com/search?category=23&query=vb&rank=&submit=Search

phpBB2 - 7 results
http://www.securityfocus.com/search?category=23&query=phpbb2&rank=&submit=Search

invision board - 4 results

Definitely. And I don't believe that there is another community out there as vibrant as the YaBBSE community. At least issues get addressed with YaBBSE -- and *quick*.

I can upgrade from 1.5.1 all that way to 1.5.4 right? Without installing or upgrading to 1.5.2 or 1.5.3? Right?

Yes, use the UPGRADE package, not UPDATE.

Look, there's always another security hole.  There are holes in WINDOWS.  I mean, do you realize that 90% of the updates that you get on windowsupdate (they come out every few weeks...) are security fixes?!  Do you think that you own ANY software that has no holes in it?  If you do, you are nieve beyond belief.

Most security holes are fixed after they are found by some other group and exploited.  No one was exploited through these bugs, as far as we know.  I found two of them, Christian Land found two others, and Compuart patched them  (plus another hole).  No one else even knew they existed.

So be glad we're still checking.... especially when we're working on the next release which didn't have any of these bugs.... ::). (it has a different architecture, and mostly has bugs not holes.)
