Security issue in 1.5.7?

Post by mikebrogan » Tue Oct 21, 2008 12:31 am

[removed] reports a security issue with Joomla 1.5.7. I haven't seen an official comment from the JSST so I'm wondering if this is something serious?

Here's the original article: [removed]

I have spoken to the development team and they should have a blog up about this shortly. From what I understand, this information you have been given is not accurate.

Be patient and look out for that blog post shortly.

Please understand I removed the links you posted just like we do with all potential security exploits posted in public.
