WordPress 4.2.4 Security Update


Vor vier Tage wurde ein Sicherheitsupdate des Blogmotors veröffentlicht, und weil das mittlerweile bei den meisten WP Installationen hier im Bloghüttenhaushalt automatisch im Hintergrund passiert, wäre mir fast durchgerutscht, darauf hinzuweisen, sorry.

This release addresses six issues, including three cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and a potential SQL injection that could be used to compromise a site, which were discovered by Marc-Alexandre Montpas of Sucuri, Helen Hou-Sandí of the WordPress security team, Netanel Rubin of Check Point, and Ivan Grigorov. It also includes a fix for a potential timing side-channel attack, discovered by Johannes Schmitt of Scrutinizer, and prevents an attacker

WordPress 4.2.2 Security Update

Und schon wieder gibt es ein Sicherheitsupdate für WordPress:

WordPress 4.2.2 is now available. This is a critical security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

Die WP Entwickler sind echt fleissig, und dank des Auto-Updates muss man, sofern aktiviert, auch gar nicht mehr selbst runter in den Keller… aber nachschauen und kontrollieren, ob noch alles läuft, muss man halt trotzdem. Hoffentlich halten die Backups im Fall der Fälle. Ihr macht doch regelmässig Backups, gell.

TYPO3 6.2 content image in Typoscript

Here are a few lines of TypoScript code that really took me a long time to get to.

In TYPO3 4.x, I would fetch an image which is inserted on a certain page as a normal content element (CE) and use it for example as an site wide header image.
In this example, the image in question is located in the backend column ‚left‘ (id 1) on the root page of the site, the PID of that page is stored in a TS-variable {$home_dir}, since I change it further down the page tree via TS-constants.

TYPO3 4.x

temp.headerimg < styles.content.getLeft temp.headerimg { ...

TYPO3 sys_category bug after upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2

After a recent update from TYPO3 6.1 to 6.2 on a site that makes use of the new sys_category function, I noticed a strange behaviour:

Even though categories were shown in the front end and, if viewed with the list tool in the backend, also showed as defined, they were not selected on their according pages.

In page-edit view, the pages would not have their categories attached – none of the categories were checked. But the correct categories were shown on these pages in the front end.

Back in the list view of the categories, a click on info on a …

Notes from the trench: Updating a TYPO3 4.5 installation to version 6.2

What is this about?
Currently I’m in the process of updating a fairly simple website from the now outdated „Long Time Version“ 4.5 to it’s successor, 6.2.
Since I consider myself as not-the-top-notch-but-not-so-dumb kind of TYPO3 maintainer, and I ran in some issues that surprised me (and I didn’t find answers right away), maybe someone will find this useful. I try to document my plans, how it went and what errors on my or other sides occurred
1. Going local
Since the update is announced as non-trivial, I thought it best to create a local test version. I tar-ed the live …

WordPress 4.0.1, 3.9.3, 3.8.5, 3.7.5 Security Updates


Heute ist ein ganzer Satz Security-Updates für die vier letzten WordPress Versionen erschienen:

This is a critical security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

Kritisch. Dringend. Das klingt ernst, und deshalb: Hopphopp, runterladen und ran an die Aktualisierungsknöppe, sofern Ihr die Installationen nicht durch das automatische Update pflegen lasst.

Wer wissen will, was für ein Loch da unter anderem da gefixt wurde, möge hier lesen. Ich finde es ja immer wieder faszinierend/beängstigend, was für abgefahrene Exploits die Leute so finden. Der Angriffsvektor, …

Four-Oh – WordPress 4.0 ist da


Version 4.0 of WordPress, named “Benny” in honor of jazz clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard.

WordPress 3.9.2 Security Update

Gestern Abend wurde ein Sicherheitsupdate für die aktuellen Versionen von WordPress veröffentlicht:

WordPress 3.9.2 is now available as a security release for all previous versions. We strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.
This release fixes a possible denial of service issue in PHP’s XML processing, reported by Nir Goldshlager of the Product Security Team. It was fixed by Michael Adams and Andrew Nacin of the WordPress security team and David Rothstein of the Drupal security team. This is the first time our two projects have coordinated joint security releases.
WordPress 3.9.2 also contains other security changes
