bbPress 2.5.5 is out. It fixes 3 potential security issues for all previous bbPress 2.x installations. If you’re using any version of bbPress 2.x and have been hesitating to upgrade, please consider doing so today. If you need help, please reach out in our support forums and someone will be happy to help.
Thanks go out to J.D. Grimes for identifying and responsibly disclosing his findings. The bbPress team (once again) worked quickly to get 2.5.5 out in just over 24 hours of being notified.
Please accept our apologies (again) for the late-Friday release, and take a quick moment to give your bbPress installations a quick update to 2.5.5.
All of these fixes have been ported over to 2.6, and we’ll be releasing a beta real soon!
