  • Reported 4.0.2 PL1 XSS Vunerability

    Regarding this reported exploit:

    An official patch is forthcoming. Meanwhile I have attached a patched type.php file to this message. Unzip that file and upload it, replacing the existing ../vb/search/type.php file

    Note: This is for those running 4.0.2 PL1 only.

    If for some reason you want to apply this patch yourself, find the following file:


    In that type.php file, find this near the bottom of the file:

    'query' => TYPE_STR,

    Replace that with this:

    'query' => TYPE_NOHTML,

    Please note that if you have already applied Paul M's patch here, then you do not have to apply this patch.
