Supposed security hole in MisterEstate

29.08.2009 03:14 by Admin

since yesterday Google and other searchengines list several links to an exploit which can be used for sql injections and database manipulation. The exploit was reported at www.milw0rm.com on 18.08.2009.

Because the author of the exploit failed to name the ME version for his exploit, I want to catch it up:

the exploit concerns ME 1.5.0 and older versions only. Securitypatches were already released on 18.05.2009 and are available for free. Those using an unpatched ME version are strongly adviced to download and install the securitypatch or switch to the newest ME release.

Current versions (from ME 1.5.1) are not affected.

Seems someone wanted to aggrandize itsself...

MisterEstate 1.6.0 stable released

28.08.2009 01:38 by Admin

MisterEstate 1.6.0 stable

ME 1.6.0 is the first 100% complete native version, legacy mode is no more required. With this release switching to Joomla 1.5 as base is finished.

The focus of future development will be further adjustment to the J! 1.5 architecture (MVC) and the implementation of new and userfriendlier features:
for example the current object type and attribute model will be replaced by a more flexible one, which will enable administrators to declare own object types and attributes and use ME not only for presentation of real estate properties. Another milestone will be the implementation of import and export interfaces, which will enable ME to exchange data with local applications and other websites. More informations about will be published soon.

At this point I want to thank all ME users and subscribers who enabled the fast switch to Joomla 1.5 and the project´s continuance with their fees and other contributions.
