This is a personal website and doesn't have anything to do with Six Apart nevertheless Chris Alden, the former Six Apart CEO, appreciated my idea when he saw it available online.

Movable Type 6.0.1, 5.2.9, and 5.161 Security Updates

Vote 0 Votes
In November the 15th, 2013, Six Apart released a mandatory security update for movable type v5x and v6x.

The security issue that was identified and fixed is related to the Rich Text Editor present in movable type v5 and v6 which was susceptible to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

A remote attacker could have injected JavaScript into a page or an entry from within a movable type blog or parent website.

Furthermore, that JavaScript coding could have been executed on the client browser when that page or entry would have been displayed in the Rich Text Editor.

It is strongly recommended that all installations running movable type v5.x or v6.x are upgraded to the latest release. If you need another pair of hands for upgrading your movable type installation I'm available.
