MyBB 1.4.13 Released – Security Patches to MyBB 1.4.12

MyBB 1.4.13 is now available on the MyBB website and is a patch to MyBB 1.4.12 which introduced two regressions related to the security updates in MyBB 1.4.12.

This release is to ensure that all users on 1.4.12 have the proper security patches applied to their forum.

Thank you to Pirata Nervo and Labrocca for alerting us of these issues and to Stefan Esser for assisting us in a patch for Issue #843.

Reporting MyBB security vulnerabilities

If you think you’ve found a vulnerability in MyBB, we advise you not to publicly post it on these forums or publicly release information about it elsewhere until we’ve had time to prepare and release a patch.

As always, you can send through security related messages on the MyBB website from the Contact Us page.

MyBB 1.2.14 Patch

All users of the 1.2.x series are urged to upgrade to the latest release of MyBB. (1.4.13) MyBB 1.2 is no longer being supported and security updates for the MyBB 1.2 series ceased as of January 1, 2010.

Thank you,
MyBB Team

  1. Cool.I wonder if there will be a 14th subversion of 1.4 subversion!
    I saw that that 1.4.12 will be the last release of the 1.4 series.But no, some more bugs are fixed 🙂
    Keep up the good work and we all are waiting for 1.6.Release as soon as you can!

  2. Thanks for the update as always.

    Previously these announcements were made in the forum, which had one pro: when you subscribed to that specific forum you got an instant email when there was a new topic (release). Right now, we are only informed by the mailing list, which sometimes have delays of several days or a whole week. In this case the email about 1.4.12 & 1.4.13 was sent on 19th which arrived on time (which was nice!), but there was nothing sent about 1.4.12 when it was released on april 13th (or at least nothing received). With the forum subscription we would’ve been notified immediately about 1.4.12 instead of 6 days later.

    Are there any plans to somehow make a forum subscription available again so we can receive instant messages?

  3. zoog: The reason that the email from the mailing list is sometimes not instant is that we release it and allow some time for any errors that we may have missed to be found by members and reported before we have everyone upgrade and encounter errors.

    If you’d like I’m sure you can subscribe to the blog via the RSS feed.

  4. Thanks for the reply Ryan. I thought it was due to technical issues or mailinglist size, but I understand now. I really liked the instant subscription email though, but I’ll have a look at how to subscribe to the blog.
