CakePHP 1.3.17 has been released. This is an important update for all users of 1.3. It is recommended that all users of 1.3 should upgrade as soon as possible.

In the previous release for 1.3.16 a mistake was made when creating the 1.3.16 tag. An important fix was missed from the packaged release. We recommend that all applications using 1.3 upgrade to 1.3.17 immediately safeguard against the SQL injection issue that 1.3.16 was intended to fix.

How did this happen?

When creating the package for 1.3.16, a git clone was not correctly updated before generating the new tag. To prevent this issue in the future, we’ll be updating the automated build script used to package CakePHP to always update the local clone. This should prevent similar errors in the future.
