WordPress 2.8.4 Released

Posted in Business Software, Development Software, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Web Apps, Windows

WordPress 2.8.4 has just been released to the public. This version is to patch a vulnerability that was discovered yesterday – a specially crafted URL could be requested that allows an attacker to bypass a security check to verify a user-requested password reset.

As a result, the first account without a key in the database (which is normally the admin), would have its password reset, with the new password emailed to the account owner. Although this does not allow any form of remote access, but it can be quite annoying.

Pidgin 2.5.8 Releases and Fixes Yahoo! Issue

Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Web Apps, Windows

When I was using Pidgin a couple of weeks back, I realised that it was almost impossible to log on to Yahoo! account. The first thing that came into my mind was, has my account been hacked? I checked, it seems okay. I did not bother to rectify this connectivity issue with Yahoo! as most of my contacts are from MSN. Only a few days back did I checked the update from Pidgin website that Yahoo! has changed its security protocol that disallowed previous versions of Pidgin to connect; therefore, Pidgin 2.5.8 has been released to rectify this issue.

Amongst the changes were fixes to ICQ crash, MSN crash for users with long buddy lists, Yahoo crash, as well as receiging messages from the web version of MySpace IM and signing on to MySpace IM if users have empty buddy list.

The strong recommendation from the Pidgin developers is: Upgrade to this 2.5.8 version if you have not done so.

Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99

Posted in Beta, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

I have just received notification to upgrade my Firefox browser to the latest version of Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99. The code “b99″ sounds a little interesting, as this is probably the first time I have seen Mozilla come up with this codename.

This version is a preview of Firefox 3.5, the upcoming version of the Firefox web browser. It has not yet gone through a full set of quality assurance tests, and should not be considered as a release candidate. Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate is expected to be issued shortly. At that time users will be automatically upgraded to that version.
