Warning: Security issue on plugins

  • Not where this should go (nor if already has been posted).

    There has been a warning on security for some plugins who add buttons in the editor bar.

    Plugins involved are myGallery and Wordtube. Update those as soon as possible.

    If you use a plugin which insert such a button, I suggest you check on the plugin site.

    Note: Viper’s nice plugins and Image Manager does not have this security issue.

    meh.

    It’s not buttons that anyone has to be worried about. Both plugins you mention allowed the “path to certain files” to be set via an http_ post

    Given that, its then possible to set a path to malicious file.

    Yes, you’re right. But the way they do it (insert button) has been shown many times on internet as a way to insert button with WP 2.1.
