  4. IP.Board 3.4.x Security Update

    We are releasing a patch for IP.Board 3.4.x to address a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) issue. It has been brought to our attention that specifically crafted posted content followed by specific user actions can cause a scenario where untrusted javascript can execute.  A patch is being released to address this potential issue.  This download also includes a patch for an email issue previously reported to us. To apply the patch Simply download the attached zip and upload the files to your forum server.   This single zip file includes the patch files for both IP.Board as well as IP.Gallery.   patch_2016_1_21.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 3.4.9 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 @newbie LAC for responsibly disclosing this issue to us.
  5. IP.Board 3.4.9 Released

    IP.Board 3.4.9 is now available in the client area This is a maintenance release to consolidate security updates released since 3.4.8, release additional security updates, and fix some minor bugs impacting many clients. We recommend you upgrade to ensure you have all security updates in place. You can download in the client area and upgrade as normal.   We would like to thank newbie LAC for responsibly reporting a potential CSRF (cross-site request forgery) issue related to warnings resolved with the release of 3.4.9.   Support Notes IPS will no longer provide upgrade services for self-hosted licenses on the 3.x series. You can do the upgrade yourself (it's very easy) but our support will only do upgrades for you to IPS Community Suite 4. If you are a IPS Cloud client we will still do the upgrades for you. IP.Board 3.4.x will reach "End of Support" status soon and we strongly encourage all clients to upgrade to the 4.x Community Suite.
