Phorum 5.2.17 released - SECURITY FIX
August 26, 2011 12:59PM
We are happy to announce our latest stable release Phorum-5.2.17.
It is a bug fix release over 5.2.16 fixing some issues reported (including patches, thanks folks!) and other collected changes since the last release.

It also includes a security fix for an XSS issue reported by Russ McRee @ holisticinfosec in the real name screen in the controlcenter. Thanks Russ!


As there were again some users having problems while running phorum on PHP4 we made PHP5 a requirement with this version. Effectively that means that users running PHP4 won't be able to install Phorum anymore and the install screen will tell them so.

You can download this new release from our downloads page.

This is the excerpt from the changelog:
