Security Fixes

  • Fixed issue that caused the database to fail to distinguish between "deny" and "allow" folders and could potentially reveal the names of folders the user did not have access to.
  • Fixed issue that made possible to use a specially crafted URL to directly load a module, and due to a flaw in the logic, at that time the module permissions were not correctly loaded, but instead the page permissions were applied.
  • Improved data sanitation in the lists module that could lead to a reflective cross-site scripting (XSS) issue.
  • The Journal module allows a user to post a link to an image they have previously uploaded. By intercepting and replacing the request, it is possible to add additional javascript to the image and have it rendered. The code has been updated to validate and remove such requests.

Reviews for this release

Thanks for your response, Cathal - it gave me an idea to try the install on another app which had no folders other than the default folders of a clean DNN install, and the admin File Manager works. Now begins the task of finding the culprit. It will be nice to utilize the new features and fixes in this release (once I figure out which folder is killing my admin file manager!)

Still throwing null reference exception when visiting Extensions page with debug mode set to true in web.config which is annoying as hell, makes developers cry! :(

Upgrade from 5.0.6 went fine. Cannot save host settings due to a new check on the SMTP port number. The error is that you cannot use a custom port number in medium trust. This isn't true. I think a warning that it MIGHT not work is fair. But that should not prevent the settings from being saved.

This is by far the best release of DotNetNuke, ever! Hard to complain about this many awesome capabilities that were given away to the world on an MIT license for you to use for any and all web projects that you want. Social, mobile, content management, application development... Outstanding work!!!

The 6.2.1 release broke all of the hyphenated URLs on the site. Page names with hyphens (support previously added in 6.1.5) no longer work.

No problems during version upgrade (from 6.2.0). This update solves a lot of issues. Thanks! Still (new) major issues with the Member Directory features.

You have to insert a new row in table Versions with 6.2.1. Extensions does not work.

Thomas, that is the expected result, when you upgrade you put the latest DLLs out there but the DB needs upgraded so that then executes

Upgrade stated "Current Assembly Version: 06.02.01" instead of 6.2.0. Having some Jquery issues with megamenu from old skin, but otherwise looks good.
