Default Important Security Patch for Mambo 4.5.1a and 4.5(1.0.9)

The Mambo team has just released a security update to Mambo this morning.

All Mambo webmasters are strongly advised to update their site immediately.

Although we have not received any reports on the exploit being used in Mambo websites, it is serious and it enables the attacker to gain full access to your Mambo admin.

At this time we are not releasing details of how to leverage this vulnerability to protect existing sites.

The patch files contains a new version of /includes/mambo.php which has a countermeasure for this vulnerability. Simply upload the mambo.php in the zip to your server, replacing you existing /includes/mambo.php file on your site.

Note that for a 4.5.0 site, the file is /classes/mambo.php.


It appears this issue is related to a vulnerability found in PHP last month.
