WPtouch Security Update – Version 3.4.7

Yesterday someone informed us of a potential security issue with file uploads within WPtouch. After investigating, we determined that the code that allows WordPress administrators to upload files needed to be hardened to not accept certain types of files. We’ve included this fix in version 3.4.7, which was released last night for WPtouch Pro as well as the free version of WPtouch.

This issue only affected WordPress administrators who were already logged in, many of whom typically have access to the file system already. When possible, update to 3.4.7 which includes the updated file upload handling with improved security.

Security Fix in WPtouch and WPtouch Pro 3.4.3: Insecure Nonce Generation in WPtouch

Thanks to the folks at Sucuri.net we were made aware last week of a security vulnerability in WPtouch 3.x that allowed logged-in users to upload malicious files to a WPtouch installation.

The issue was fixed in 3.4.3 released over the weekend, before the security issue was publicized, though anyone running WPtouch 3.x or WPtouch Pro 3.x should make sure they’re running the latest version of the plugin to be 100% secure.

The issue does not affect WPtouch 1.x or 2.x users, and only affects 3.x users where an attacker has already logged in (so they require an account with your website to exploit).

Currently, all managed GoDaddy and MediaTemple customers running WPtouch have been automatically updated to the latest version, so if you’re using their services you’re already up to date.

We regularly and routinely scan WPtouch for security vulnerabilities, and we appreciated responsible disclosure of this security issue directly to our team. Folks like Sucuri are great at providing us with information to improve and enhance the security of software, and we’re grateful for the work they do.

WordPress always encourages updating to the latest version as a means of making sure you’re protected against security issues, so make sure you’re running the latest versions of WordPress-related software to ensure your security on your website.
