Security Fixes

  • The Diff Validation API no longer allows usage of private repositories.

    The Validate Diff List Resource allowed for private repositories to be specified when validating a new diff. This did not leak any file contents whatsoever, but could expose whether a particular file at a revision did or did not exist, or whether an uploaded patch could be applied against those files.

    This is only an issue for servers making use of private repositories, and it does not apply to Local Site access control. Still, we recommend that everyone updates to this release.
