Therefore we have had to make some emergency decisions:

In order to respect the terms of long standing CLT members, and to allow them to step down as planned, the CLT is looking for people willing to take up temporary positions within the team whilst the project is still in transition.

One of the requirements to get your vulnerable extension marked as resolved is that you publish a security release announcement on your website. However we have noticed that developers often seem to have trouble with understanding what this means.

So what does it mean? We do not have a standard format for this, however we do ask that any reasonably...

 

Recently an issue was reported to the Vulnerable Extensions List team, which affected the blogging platform for Joomla, Easy Blog. After some thought we decided that it did not fall within the normal definition of a security issue that would merit listing on the VEL. It was reported to us by a site owner whose site had been hit by an...
