Anonymous Dmitriy told... would like to announce availability of new version 1.90 of 1-Search script which is a mandatory security upgrade. Please get your files along with installation and upgrade instructions here.

We encourage you to perform the upgrade as soon as possible.

All previous versions of 1-Search (1.80 and earlier) are affected.

The vulnerability may allow an attacker to submit specially crafted search string that will initiate a JavaScript code execution or show a non-sanctioned link to an inappropriate website which can have negative effect on your search engine positioning.

The new version is designed to filter the XSS JavaScript along with other HTML tags. Additionally it has GET query disabled thus eliminating the possibility for an attacker to expose any bad links on your sites by linking to them from other sites.
