Update (July 21, 2014): Moodle has now released information on the security issues fixed in the releases. Among the vulnerabilities fixed is a vulnerability that could lead to remote code execution, several that could allow access to server-side files, and several cross-site script (XSS) vulnerabilities.
Moodle 2.4.11 is the last release for the 2.4 branch and anyone running it should upgrade to a newer, supported, version.
Zen Cart 1.5.3 was released on Friday. The new version is designed to be compatible with PHP versions 5.4 and 5.5, it also verified to be compatible with the beta version of 5.6. The new version fixes several cross-site scripting (XSS) security vulnerabilities and changes password hashing to bcrypt (requires PHP 5.3.7 or newer). The new versions also includes performance enhancements and bug fixes.
The new version increases the system requirements to PHP version 5.3.7 or greater (“may run on as low as PHP 5.2.10, but with lesser security protections available”) and MySQL 5.0 or greater.
This version is not PA-DSS certified, so those who need a PA-DSS certified version will need to remain on 1.5.0 until the next PA-DSS certified version based on 1.5.3 is released.
More information is available in the release announcement.
