Review Board 2.0.4 Release Notes

Release date: July 22, 2014

Security Updates

This release fixes a couple of security vulnerabilities that came to our attention. These have not been publicly disclosed.

  • Fixed a vulnerability where a URL to a diff fragment could be crafted that would inject custom HTML into the page. An attacker could send such a URL to another user and execute code in their browser session.

    This was reported by Uchida. A CVE number is pending.

  • The Original File and Patched File resources could be used to access files on a private review request that the user did not have access to, if they knew the approciate database IDs.

    A CVE number is pending.

New Features

  • Added support for parent diffs in the New Review Request page.

    When uploading a diff, Review Board will now detect if a parent diff is needed for the patch to apply. If so, the user will be shown an appropriate error and then shown fields for uploading a parent diff.


  • Updated the Italian translations.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the URL to the Recaptcha registration page. (Bug #3471)
  • Fixed the command line used for update_index in the example crontab.

Review Requests

  • Fixed the display of errors when failing to publish a draft review request.

    Patch by Mark Côté.

  • When uploading file attachments, malformed mimetypes provided by the browser will be ignored, and a proper mimetype will be guessed. (Bug #3427)

  • Long strings in the right-hand review request fields no longer cause fields to overlap. (Bug #3371)

  • Fixed the display of errors in the Upload Diff and Add File dialogs. (Bug #3413)


  • Fixed a Unicode compatibility issue when fetching files using PySVN.
