Polish lang pack (incomplete)

Michaล‚ Kostrzewa has provided us with a lang pack for Polish; he decided he didn’t want to continue the work, so the package is incomplete and it’s not utf-8 (as it should)

If you’re willing to help, it’s on the wiki

Blog / General / News / FP (not) Hacked

FP (not) Hacked

update update! No worries! as I was saying, my bad. A little /test.php slipped into the final 0.703.x release (since which one? who knows) right in the release package. Just blast it away and you’re hopefully safe.

Totally crapped my pants today.

Hat tip to mr. l33t h4×0rz.

I’ve updated the package on SourceForge.

As a file is supposed to be deleted, anyway, just overwriting the file won’t work, you know. FTP to your site and delete test.php.

Have a nice day

Tonight an attacker managed to hack into some of your blogs.

Good time, just now that I’m very worried about an exam. Thank you, you nice guy, for not even contacting me before trying to hack around.

At least mr. l33t h4×0rz didn’t delete anything, but I can’t be 100% sure he can’t.

The attack consisted in posting a few ‘test’ entries.

My suggestion is to do a backup, just in case, and maybe reinstall with a new password (remember: overwrite using the same userid), even though I think he didn’t gain full access to the panel but he found some kind of backdoor I’m not aware of.

In the end, I’m making a plea to him, all kudos to you for finding such a bug (which probably consists in some foolery on my side), but please contact me soon, so that I can release a patch (and be back to study for my Software Engineering exam)

Thank you so much,
signed: a very worried dev

SVN screenshot gallery


Our great friend drudo, admin of SPBItalia has managed to provide us with a complete gallery of screenshots of FlatPress Crescendo+1.

As I’ve already posted you can get a daily snapshot of the development version to play with.

Blog / General / News / Announcements / SVN Snapshots!

SVN Snapshots!

(or: “the nice facility for lazy people”)

I’ve managed to setup a “daily” snapshot of the Subversion repository nicely packaged in a tarball.

This package is updated every evening at 21:16 GMT (so in Italy at 22.16)

Download it here!

Consider this as your “alpha” release, if you want, so that you can start playing around with the upcoming new FlatPress.

Please notice this is NOT a stable release.

I’d suggest to test extensively to report bugs, but locally, because this is not meant to be used in a production environment!

If you upgrade your blog remember to BACKUP and that it is at your risk!

That said, have fun!
