If you already did the UPDATE just do the UPGRADE over it, and run upgrade.php.

yabbse_1-5-4_update from 1.5.3 is something like replacing? isn't it?

But are Mods working then or must the mods new re-installed?

Why isn't there a BoadMod-file to upgrade like 1.52 was?

I know there is nothing like that ... but I meant major security bugs-free release ... I wouldn't care for minor bugs ...

Like [unknown] said. The last few holes were found by Team-Members while going through the code over and over again. Some of the holes we found would only be relevant to a very, very small minority because they needed PHP to be configured quite "badly" (magic_quotes_gpc=off/register globals=on, ...). Some of the holes could be exploited by people with a little bit of knowledge. Just see it that way: we do the best to fix those holes as soon as they are found and we keep our community informed.

There was no "need" for us to release either 1.5.3/1.5.4 because all problems in those versions were not public. We did it anyway, because we want to make sure that using YaBB SE is a safe thing to do... we could just have said "Hey, nobody knows about those problems, just lets ignore them until someone publishes them --- less work for us" ... but that just isn't the way we handle things ;D

Great work guys.

I got the notification.

No software is bug-free... someone will always find a hole in it... the key is to have a team that is readily available to plug them holes... and this (1.5.4) is a good example of the hole-pluggers doing a great job.

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*.

So quick in fact that I believe these are undiscovered holes that were discovered by the YSE team and patched before the dodgy characters discovered them.

doh - should read the whole thread first

I can't upgrade...when I go to Apply the Mod, I get this instead -

2: fopen("./Packages/modification.mod", "wb") - Permission denied
(/home/sites/sitex/web/yabbse/Sources/Packer.php ln 119)

Anyone got any ideas? I'm sure it's a permissions thing, but I've no idea what the permissions should be set to.

Thanks for any advice,

Richard.
