    How easy is it to upgrade from 2.0 to the 2.2.3? I've customized the templates an awful lot and don't really want to have to do it all over again. Does anyone have any tips?

      Note, again, you do NOT have to upgrade from 2.0 to 2.2.3. This vulnerability is only in 2.1 and up.

        yes I realize that but I'm sure there are probably some things broke in 2.0 that are fixed in 2.2.3.
        • I didn't find it to hard. I think the most annoying change required me to update my dispStory template since there was a change in how topics were passed.

          You can't grep a dead tree.

        2.0 does have security holes that are fixed by the `formkey' field in forms (assuming that it is used correctly). If you are logged in to a Slash 2.0 site you should not visit untrusted web sites (especially if logged in to an admin account) as the web page can cause your web browser to use your Slash account in malicious ways. This does not require JavaScript or any advanced functionality.

        Capt. Tofu was informed about this bug but I know of no effort made to inform the Slash-using population.
