Joomla 1.5.9 Released [Security Upgrade]

Postby dam-man » Sat Jan 10, 2009 8:41 am

Security
One low-level and one high-level security issue were fixed in this release:

High Priority: Directory Traversal. A crafted request can allow an attacker to view directory trees on the server. Note: contents of files cannot be edited or deleted, just viewed. More information ?

Low Priority: SSL Session Token Disclosure. When running a site as SSL ONLY, if a non-SSL request is made, an attacker can obtain the session token. There is NO risk for Web sites that use both HTTP and HTTPS. More information ?
For additional information, visit the Joomla Security Center.
