Security Updates

This version addresses one security issue, which was recently discovered and reported to the Revive Adserver Project team by community member Florian Sander.

We strongly advise users to upgrade to the most recent version 3.0.2 of Revive Adserver. This also includes any user running any version of OpenX Source or older versions of the application, which may also be vulnerable. In case the upgrade cannot be performed in a timely fashion, we suggest to delete the “www/delivery/axmlrpc.php” script (if not in use) as a temporary fix until the application is upgraded.

Please review our Security Advisory for the details.

Community contribution

The Revive Adserver Project Team wish to thank community member Florian Sander for reporting this issue. He wrote about it on his blog. Florian also submitted a proposed code patch to our Github project, and he worked closely with us to achieve the final solution.

If you come across any other security issues, or suspects that a vulnerability exists, please contact us via the special e-mail address security AT revive-adserver DOT com. As we demonstrated with this release, we take security notices extremely serious and we aim to provide resolutions as soon as possible.
