phpBB 3.0 RC7

Posted on Thursday, October 18 2007 @ 00:44:07 CEST by

We are very pleased to announce the availability of the phpBB3 RC7 package, the "We are sorry and love our support team" edition. This release fixes some critical issues which arised with the recently released Release Candidate 6, basically fixing some bbcode problems as well as missing form tokens. On the downloads page we provide two update packages this time, one for going from RC5 to RC7 and one for going from RC6 to RC7.

This release is mostly the outcome of an external security audit performed by SektionEins. All items tagged as [Sec] were found by the company doing the audit and revealed some fundamental problems we were able to fix. We are proud that the audit revealed no sql injection vulnerability or critical command execution vulnerabilities.
