    Email plugins[AT]wordpress.org with security concerns like that, please.

    Please note, WordPress only knows about security holes if people report them, and the correct way to report them is via email to that address.



    The reference links up there are Symantec etc and range from August 26th to 28th, so I presumed WordPress has been notified. There has been no statement by the company that makes this.

    You misunderstand.

    1) WordPress does not make nor do they own plugins. The Plugin Developer does. Read up on the GPL license. WP just houses the repository.

    2) Unless someone actually remembers to tell them (which I’ve done just now via email), they know nothing.

    3) WordPress won’t fix it, they’ll just yank it if they see it’s a problem, and remove it from the repository.

    Next time, please do the correct thing. Email plugins[at]WordPress.org

    Not that they’re doing-it-right or anything, but version 1.2.3 of the plugin, as given in the trunk repository, does not appear to be vulnerable. They’re calling mysql escape functions properly as far as I can see.


    The fix happened 8 days ago: http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/433503



    Yeah, I get WordPress doesn’t make the plugins. Thanks for that pearl.

    I also wrote to the plugin manufacturer, so it’s great now we’ve all done “the correct thing”. They were totally non-responsive.

    News of this plugin’s vulnerability has not been posted in these forums because I was searching for info on it. So I alerted people. Thanks for the lecture.

    thx for the security alert, it’s much appreciate, my hat off to you kind sir :}
