    IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update
    04-30-2015
    We are releasing a patch for IP.Board 3.3.x and 3.4.x to address three cross-site scripting (XSS) issues.

    It has been brought to our attention that specifically crafted URLs may allow an attacker to adjust another user's ignored user preferences and private message options.


    To apply the patch
    Simply download the attached zip for your IP.Board version and upload the files to your forum server.
     
    IP.Board 3.4.x:
     patch_34x_04272015.zip
     
    IP.Board 3.3.x:
     patch_33x_04272015.zip


    If you are an IPS Community in the Cloud client running IP.Board 3.4 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 3.4, you should contact support to upgrade.

    If you install or upgrade to IP.Board 3.4.7 after the date and time of this post, no further action is necessary as we have already updated the main download zips.
     
    We would like to thank rack911labs.com for bringing the private message to our attention.

  2. bfarber added a bug in Bug Tracker   

    reCAPTCHA 2 issue
    If you are using reCAPTCHA 2 and you submit the registration form and it reloads due to an error, the javascript does not re-initialize.  This is easily reproducible by going to the registration page, checking "I agree to the terms" and submitting the form.  It reloads asking you to fill in all the required fields but the captcha does not display when the form reloads.

  3. bfarber added a comment: sitemap reset missing in fixUrl.php   

    This came from ticket 913163 - it wasn't specifically the changeUrl script.  The client reported that they updated their URL (or rather, I believe we did for them) and the sitemap included out of date URLs in it still.  Perhaps if we detect the base url has changed compared to what is included in the sitemap we need to wipe it and rebuild automatically.

    I have reproduced a problem in the ticket where locales that use commas as the separator do not work well for number fields.  When I edit the "6,68" value and change to "6,69" when I blur out of the field it is turned into "669".  I cannot use periods here either (they are also swapped out),
     
    I'm seeing some discussion of this online

    I believe this is due to either us using val() (instead of the valueAsNumber that is recommended) or due to our validation in ips.ui.form.js.

    While there are still other related bugs, this specific issue has been resolved.
  9. bfarber added a comment: 4.0.1 - Chat Not Connecting   

    The requests are normal, as Rikki said that's how polling works.  The fix was for the chat room not connecting.

    No the fix has not yet been released

    Sounds like you had a problem with javascript writing.  If it happens again submit a ticket.
