Geeklog 1.4.0sr3 and 1.3.11sr6

May 28th, 2006 No comments


A few security issues in Geeklog have been reported by KAPDA (a possible SQL injection and authentication bypass, a possible cross site scripting, and a path disclosure in some themes). Additionally, an internal code review has revealed another possible SQL injection in the story submission.

Geeklog developers are therefore releasing Geeklog 1.4.0sr3 to address these issues, recommending that Geeklog users install the new version as soon as possible.

As usual, the current and previous versions of Geeklog (1.4.0 and 1.3.11, respectively) are supported. If you’re still running an older version, now may be a good time to upgrade.

Talking about security issues, a security issue has recently been found in FCKeditor, whose version 2.1 ships with Geeklog 1.4.0. Further explanations and remedies about this and all the previously mentioned issues can be found in the original Geeklog announcement.

Memorial Day

[Memorial Day]

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May, while May 30 was its traditional day of observance since 1868.

Formerly known as Decoration Day, this holiday commemorates the hundreds of thousands U.S. soldiers who died during the American Civil War, and those who died in any war or military action.

Many people observe this holiday by visiting cemeteries and memorials. In addition to remembrance, Memorial Day is also a time for picnics, family gatherings, and sporting events. A long standing tradition is the running of the Indy 500 car race, which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911.

Much more information about the history and traditions of Memorial Day is available on Wikipedia, and on The History Channel web site.
