We are releasing patches for IP.Board 3.3.x, IP.Board 3.4.x and IP.Nexus 1.5.x to address three potential file inclusion issues recently reported to us, as well as one cross site scripting issue reported to us.

It has been brought to our attention that certain PHP configurations allow for a potential file inclusion security issue through some of our files intended to be run from the command line. We are releasing patches today to resolve this issue.

Additionally, it has been brought to our attention that through social engineering it is possible to direct a user to a page which can trigger an XSS (cross site scripting) attach. We are also releasing a patch today to resolve this issue.

To apply the patch
Simply download the attached zip for your IP.Board version and upload the files to your forum server. You do not need to run any scripts or the upgrade system. The attached zip files also include the patch for IP.Nexus, if you are using IP.Nexus.

IP.Board 3.4.x

If you are an IPS Community in the Cloud client running IP.Board 3.3 or above, no further action is necessary as we have already automatically patched your account. If you are using a version older than IP.Board 3.3, you should contact support to upgrade.

If you install or upgrade to IP.Board 3.4.6 or IP.Nexus 1.5.9 after the date and time of this post, no further action is necessary as we have already updated the main download zips.

We extend our thanks to sijad ( http://community.inv...r/194954-sijad/ ) for notifying us of the file inclusion issue privately and promptly.

We extend our thanks to Christian Schneider (@cschneider4711) (http://www.christian-schneider.net/) for notifying us of the cross site scripting issue as well.
