Seagull 0.6.0RC3 Released – Including Urgent Security Fix

Posted on 06 June 2006 by Demian Turner

RC3 is out! This will be the last release candidate before the
stable 0.6.0 release. But first an urgent security notice:

Schlemmer wrote in earlier last week to report a compromise he’d
discovered that allowed registered members of a Seagull installation to
increase their privileges to admin user level. His hack was quite
creative and I don’t think your average member is going to come up with
something similar, but I urge all Seagull users to upgrade to the
latest RC3 release which includes a fix that plugs the security hole.

you’re running an RC2 release and don’t want to do a full upgrade yet,
you can apply this patch. If you still need help fixing your
install try the irc channel, forum or mailing list.
