OpenX 2.8.11 Released

OpenX 2.8.11 was released yesterday. At some point the downloadable version of OpenX 2.8.10 was compromised to include malicious code that allowed remote code execution. This new version restores the versions of the files as they should have been.

It is unclear when the downloads of OpenX 2.8.10 became compromised. OpenX either has decided not release that information or does not know (considering that they did not detect the files had been modified it would be reasonable to assume they don’t know). We checkedĀ  a copy of OpenX 2.8.10 downloaded on the September 12, 2012, the day it was released, and it does not contain the backdoor. So the malicious code was added some time after that.
