Joomla News: VirtueMart 3.2.6 Release with Security Fixing and Overhauled Infrastructure


VirtueMart 3.2.6 has been released to address a minor XSS vulnerability present in previous versions as well as improve the infrastructure. It occurred when the features feeds and search were used together. It happened only for feed enabled, so administrators can close the leak by disabling the feed functions.

 

The vulnerability has been addressed by using getCurrentUrlBy function, which works with a whitelist for variable names and it urlencodes any value.

  • usermodel, extra check if the already loaded user has the right id.
  • Renamed order_done layout to orderdone to be able to create a menu item.
