IP.Board 3.3.x, 3.4.x Security Update

We are releasing patches for IP.Board 3.3.x and IP.Board 3.4.x to address two issues recently reported to us.

It has been brought to our attention that certain PHP configurations allow for a potential SQL injection vulnerability. Although this exploit requires some knowledge of your configuration and for certain files to be web-readable, we felt it important to release an update.

Additionally, it has been brought to our attention that it may be possible to send attachments via the email classes which would ordinarily be removed.

To apply the patch
Simply download the attached zip for your IP.Board version and upload the files to your forum server. You do not need to run any scripts or the upgrade system.

IP.Board 3.3.x
 3_3_x_patch_nov_14.zip

IP.Board 3.4.x
 3_4_x_patch_nov_14.zip

If you are an IPS Community in the Cloud client running IP.Board 3.3 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 3.3, 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 extend our thanks to Andrew Erb for notifying us of the email issue privately and promptly.
