Movable Type v6.3.6 Security Update

Six Apart launched today v6.3.6 and v6.2.7 as mandatory security releases.

An issue with the "Edit Template" privilege on websites and blogs has been fixed.

The release note is:

[Important] Fixed an issue where the 'Edit Template' privilege on websites or blogs are still enabled even if the 'Edit Template' system privilege is revoked from a user. (#114845 / #114958)

Affected versions are all the movable type pro and advanced versions.

Six Apart didn't make available patches for v6.1.x or older version of movable type v6, because those already reached their EOL (end of life) cycle.

They highly recommend upgrading to the latest version.

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.
