Security bulletin released

The 5.3.0 CE and PE versions of DotNetNuke have been released. The release notes can be read @

These releases fix a "low" security issue. This was reported to us by a Professional edition customer who had paid for a security firm to perform an audit on 5.2.3.

The bulletin can be read at

Note: The issue relies on invalid and outdated html tags that only work on Netscape Naviagator 8.1 and firefox 2.0. Other browsers are unaffected. 

As always we recommend you upgrade as soon as possible.

If you're new to upgrading I recommend you read the "detailed installation guide" found here , and the excellent blog entry from Erik here . For users who are running 4.6.2 or above, I recommend you read this blog entry which details how to use the upgrade package to easily merge any web.config changes.

You can read more details about these issues and our security policy here
