Why was cpg1.5.34 released?
The release covers a recently discovered XSS vulnerability that allows (if unpatched) a malevolent visitor to include own script routines under certain conditions.

Additionally, cpg1.5.34 includes fixes for the following non-security related issues:
  • Added i18n support for visiblehookpoints plugin
  • Better contrast for help boxes when using the theme "curve" (thread)
