Title: cpg1.4.25 maintenance release - upgrade recommended
Post by: Αndré on June 22, 2009, 08:26:53 am
The Coppermine development team is releasing an update for Coppermine in order to fix an issue with the http upload feature. The fix is not security critical, so if your gallery is running fine with cpg1.4.24 you don't need to upgrade. If you are running an older version than cpg1.4.23, you must update to this latest version as soon as possible because of the security impact (the past few releases before cpg1.4.23 all were security related).

How to update:
Users running versions prior to 1.4.25 should update by downloading ( the latest version from the download page ( and following the upgrade steps in the documentation (

Manual patch:
For those who want to apply the fix manually to their Coppermine 1.4.24 installation, edit include/ with a plain text editor (notepad.exe is fine), find:
Code: [Select]
$keysToSkip = array('_POST', '_GET', '_COOKIE', '_REQUEST', '_SERVER', 'HTML_SUBST', 'keysToSkip', 'register_globals_flag', 'cpgdebugger', 'key');and replace with:
Code: [Select]
$keysToSkip = array('_POST', '_GET', '_COOKIE', '_REQUEST', '_SERVER', '_FILES', 'HTML_SUBST', 'keysToSkip', 'register_globals_flag', 'cpgdebugger', 'key');
If you have problems with this update, please use the Update support board ( Do not post your issues to this announcement thread - your post will be deleted without notice.

Additionally, cpg1.4.25 includes fixes for the following non-security related issues:

Thanks to Nibbler (;u=941) for coming up with the fix.
