ChiliProject 1.5.5 has just been released. This release is a security release to fix a cache poisoning bug in the bundle Redmine.pm module which can be used for authenticating and authorizing subversion or git users for repositories served through Apache. It contains no other bug fixes or new features and is released for users who are unable to upgrade to ChiliProject 2.5.0. It is suitable for use on production websites running ChiliProject 1.x and we highly recommend that 1.x users download the release.
1.5.5 includes a security fix which was back ported from ChiliProject 2.5.0.
- Bug #709: Redmine.pm potential security issue with cache credential enabled and subversion
All users of ChiliProject who use the bundled Redmine.pm module are strongly advised to update their installations as soon as possible as the resolved issue potentially allows users to access restricted repository data.
Users of Redmine should be advised that the fixed issue is also present there. There is currently no Redmine release that fixes the it. Currently it is only addressed in the trunk and 1.3-stable branch in the repository. You should either upgrade or apply the fix in the issue manually.
Contributors to 1.5.5
I’d like to thank all of the contributors to the 1.5.5 release.
- Holger Just
- Jean-Philippe Lang
We would like to especially thank Niels Lindenthal who informed us of the security issue.
The 1.x versions of ChiliProject are officially in maintenance mode and will only be getting security updates until the release of 3.0 in early January. After that date the 1.x branch is no longer supported in any way. We recommend upgrading to the current stable version of ChiliProject in order to get general bug fixes and features, currently ChiliProject 2.5.0.
