ClassicPress 1.1.3 Release Notes

This is no longer the latest release of ClassicPress!
You can find the latest release at the top of the Release Notes subforum.

ClassicPress 1.1.3 is a security release to match the security changes in WordPress versions 5.4.1 and 4.9.14 (both released on April 29, 2020). It is available now.

If your ClassicPress site has automatic updates enabled (the default configuration), then the new version will be installed automatically. Otherwise, we strongly recommend applying this update from your site’s dashboard as soon as possible.

Security fixes since ClassicPress 1.1.2

  • Props to Muaz Bin Abdus Sattar and Jannes who both independently reported an issue where password reset tokens were not properly invalidated
  • Props to ka1n4t for finding an issue where certain private posts can be viewed unauthenticated
  • Props to Evan Ricafort for discovering an XSS issue in the Customizer
  • Props to Nick Daugherty from / WordPress Security Team who discovered an XSS issue in wp-object-cache
  • Props to Ronnie Goodrich (Kahoots) and Jason Medeiros who independently reported an XSS issue in file uploads.

For more information about the security changes in this release, see the WordPress 4.9.14 release notes post.
