Security Update

E-mail Print PDF

On November 16th, 2010 an exploit was posted by a Indonesian hacker. This exploit was an SQL injection that was caused by me not filtering the JRequest::getVar function for the category function in the Maian Silver version. I have since corrected the issue and notified all subscribers with silver subscriptions. The current free version was not affected by this since the category functionality is not included in the free version.

 Given all the things that are going on in my life right now and my business this was the last thing that I needed. People like this should really get a life!!! I have been working on this component (Which has been free mind you) for the past three years and this is the first time that this as ever happened. I am sorry to the people who were affected by this exploit and I offer my apologies. I have had big idea's for this component but time and money don't allow me to put as much time into it as I would want to. That being said I will stay vigilant and not rush any releases or development. Hopefully if my other endeavors will take off and I'll be able to work on Maian Media full time. Until then development is going to be slow and very, very careful. Thanks to all that have supported this project in one way or another. Without you there would be no Maian Media. Till next time.
