  1. Gravity Forms v1.9.6 Released

    Gravity Forms v1.9.6 is now available via automatic update and the customer downloads page. This is a security and maintenance release.

    The security issue we have patched is minor and not something that can be exploited without the user having admin access to your WordPress Dashboard. However, this may not be the case with the many other plugins that may be impacted.

    This release was coordinated with numerous other plugin developers and the WordPress core team due to the fact a large number of WordPress plugins are impacted. Some of the other plugins include: Easy Digital Downloads, WP e-Commerce, All In One SEO, WP SEO and Automattic's Jetpack.

    We highly recommend that you make sure that Gravity Forms is up to date on your WordPress site, and more importantly that all of of your WordPress plugins are also updated. Yoast has a great blog post that outlines the issue and how developers can avoid it going forward.

  6. Gravity Forms v1.9.4 Released

    Gravity Forms v1.9.4 is now available via automatic update and the customer downloads page. This is a maintenance and security release and we recommend users update as soon as possible.

    This release includes a fix for a blind SQL injection vulnerability similar to the issue recently fixed in other popular WordPress plugins such as WPSEO, WooCommerce, and PODS. The scope of this vulnerability was limited to functionality within the Gravity Forms admin by a user within sufficient privileges to view and edit forms within the WordPress Dashboard. By default this vulnerability could only be exploited by a WordPress user with admin privileges to your site and could not be exploited anonymously from the frontend.
