Vtiger 5.4.0 Security Patch Released

***April 2nd, 2012 UPDATE: Some users may experience performance issues after applying the security patch below. If you do experience performance issues, please download and apply this patch after applying the security patch. As many of you are aware, Vtiger CRM Open Source 6.0 is still under development and is slated for a May release. For those currently using Vtiger CRM Open Source 5.4, we would like to recommend applying a new security patch, which fixes a series of vulnerabilities reported by Mr. Nick Freeman from security-assessment.com and Mr. Egidio. The patch covers the following discovered vulnerabilities: Local File Inclusion Local File Deletion SQL Injection PHP Code Injection Cross site scripting Arbitrary File Upload Authentication Bypass vulnerabilities(SOAP API’s) 1. Before deploying the patch It is essential to have an available backup of your Vtiger installation in the result of any errors. To do this, create a copy of the entire Vtiger folder, and place it in a different location. As there is no database change in this particular case, a database dump is unnecessary. 2. Obtaining the patch files Download the patch files from: SourceForge Vtiger Link 3. Upload the patch files to your Vtiger CRM 5.4.0 folder 4. Extract the patch files to that directory, overwriting any files as necessary

Hello

I have version 5.4 of the open source vtiger.
I never upgraded to version 5.4 of my vtiger before.
I think that since the launch I never even installed an update.

Today I found your blog on the suggestion of installing the security update

Can you tell me if there were others before this update?
Can you tell me if this installation contains all updates released to date?
Can you tell me how do I know which version of my Vtiger (not 5.4, obviously)?

I’m anxious for version 6.0, but as they say, everything is good and cheap it is time consuming.

Thanks if you can help me.

I installed the patch yesterday and afterwards I recognized that vtiger is now very slow in loading the pages. In this way it isn’t usable and I’ve to do a rollback. Anyone who discovered the same behaviour?

Bye
Tom

My most sincere apologies for the delay – and thank you all for chiming in and leaving feedback. In our initial testing we didn’t run into the problems that you faced and apologize for pushing the security patch out without catching that. We were recently able to replicate the issues being seen and have released a performance patch here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/vtigercrm/files/vtiger%20CRM%205.4.0/Core%20Product/VtigerCRM-5.4.0-Performance_Patch.zip/download

If you still experiencing any problems after applying the patch, please leave a comment and we’ll dive in even deeper to see what’s wrong. Alternatively, if the patch does solve the issue please do also leave a comment. We try to test as many scenarios as we can but unfortunately can’t replicate every instance. Thank you all very much for your patience!

@Kay: Thanks for providing the performance patch. I applied the pach succesfully resulting in a little faster behaviour. But compared to the initial speed of the fresh and probably insecure installation of vtiger this is a big difference, because it was much faster at the beginning. I guess I’ve to wait at vtiger 6.
But thanks again for the very fast developing of the improvement patch.
