ClassicPress 1.0.2 Release Notes

ClassicPress 1.0.2 is a security release to match the security changes in WordPress versions 5.2.3 and 4.9.11 (both released yesterday). It is available now.

Security fixes from 1.0.1

  • Props to Simon Scannell of RIPS Technologies for finding and disclosing two issues. The first, a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability found in post previews by contributors. The second was a cross-site scripting vulnerability in stored comments.
  • Props to Tim Coen for disclosing an issue where validation and sanitization of a URL could lead to an open redirect.
  • Props to Anshul Jain for disclosing reflected cross-site scripting during media uploads.
  • Props to Zhouyuan Yang of Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs who disclosed a vulnerability for cross-site scripting (XSS) in shortcode previews.
  • Props to Ian Dunn of the Core Security Team for finding and disclosing a case where reflected cross-site scripting could be found in the dashboard.
  • Props to Soroush Dalili (@irsdl) from NCC Group for disclosing an issue with URL sanitization that can lead to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
  • In addition to the above changes, we are also updating jQuery on older versions of WordPress. This change was added in 5.2.1 and is now being brought to older versions.

2 posts were split to a new topic: jQuery patch in 1.0.2 did not receive a new version number

Yes, been getting those all day.

What’s really cool though is that I don’t have to worry about an update doing something totally weird to my sites. I can trust ClassicPress updates to be “no nasty surprises”.
