JCE 2.5.3 released

Posted in Latest News

JCE 2.5.3 has been released. This is an important security update.

Security Update

A vulnerability has been reported in the JCE upload routine that could allow a privileged user (in this case one allowed to use the editor and upload files), using the right tools, to upload a php file to the site by intercepting and altering the upload request data. The upload destination is limited to that set in the editor profile ("images" by default).

This vulnerability was introduced as the result of a mistake in the code in JCE 2.5.0 and affects versions 2.5.0, 2.5.1 and 2.5.2. Versions prior to this do not appear to be affected, but all users are requested to upgrade to 2.5.3

Thank you to Fábio Pires (https://twitter.com/fabiopirespt), Vitor Oliveira (https://twitter.com/r0t1v) and Filipe Reis (https://twitter.com/fjreis) from INTEGRITY Portugal for reporting the vulnerability and verifying the fix.

Upgrading to JCE 2.5.3

Upgrading to JCE 2.5.3 is quick and easy. If you are using Joomla 3, you will be notified of an available update after logging into the Administration.

Updates Available

Click on the View Updates button. A list of available updates will be displayed. Select JCE Editor, then click the Update button.

Update

If you are using Joomla 1.5 or Joomla 2.5, you can upgrade using the Updates dialog in the JCE Control Panel.

Click on the Updates Available button.

JCE 2.5.0 released

Posted in Latest News

UPDATE

JCE 2.5.1 has been released to fix a bug where some elements, eg: <em>, <i> were removed if they had no attributes.

JCE 2.5.0 "Stable" has been released. This update includes a number of changes and bug fixes. Thank you to everyone who tested the Beta and Release Candidate versions.

Changes to core file packaging

Some time ago we introduced a method to combine and compress the editor's javascript and css files, resulting in a single javascript or css file for the browser to download. This generally results in improved load performance, as the browser only has to download one file.

Some users have found, and reported, that for some reason or other, this feature does not work on their site, or they choose not to use it. We have therefore done some of this combining when the extension is packaged, resulting in fewer javascript and css files in the extension, and therefore fewer files to load by the editor and add-ons.

Enabling the compression options will still combine these files into a single javascript and css file.

New Features 

Three new features have been added in this release:

Form Elements for Custom Styles

It is now possible to create a Custom Style with a form, input, button, fieldset or legend tag.

Total Files and Total File Size limits

You can set the total number of files the File Directory Path (and its subfolders) can contain, as well as the total size of this folder in Editor Profiles -> Editor Parameters -> Filesystem. This restriction is applied when the user uploads a file.

total filestotal file size

"Mixed" Doctype

A "Mixed" Doctype option is available in the Editor Global Configuration and is the default setting on new installs. This option sets the HTML schema the editor uses to included HTML4 and HTML5 elements and attributes.

JCE 2.4.6 released

Posted in Latest News

This is a maintenace release to fix some issues reported since the release of 2.4.6, as well as a possible minor vulnerability in the JCE Add-ons Installer.

Possible Vulnerability in JCE Add-ons Installer
