Web Server Change2009-06-09

Just as a notice give or take within 72 hours(or so) my account is being moved to another server. I only know that its supposedly due to performance/stability. I assume with the server and not related to us.

So there could be some downtime though I hope not. Its supposed to be an emergency move, so I did get a upgrade on my account because of it (Woo unlimited storage/bw, (cough as if I needed it)).

But as of right now thats all I know. Hopefully no problems will arise.

Update: Its just the normal server move they planned to new hardware, although they made it sound like something urgent/bad happened.

The Cotonti Team is now mostly focused on Renaissance branch which is great amount of work. So if you'd like to see the most major release ever in Autumn, please participate in discussions, suggest features and make your contributions!

Events Plugin SQL Injection2009-04-24

A sql injection has been brought forward for the Event plugin (Link). This is not an exploit with Cotonti itself or a default plugin. So unless you are using the Events Plugin (Link). Then you are ok.

Anyone using this plugin should upgrade immediately.
