One of the vulnerabilities was also independently discovered by Charlie Briggs and disclosed on milw0rm.com, forcing Secunia to publish the research results before our fix releases were ready.

The review contains a list of 22 items for multiple vulnerabilities ranging from XSS to SQL injection to directory traversal. Some are only exploitable by authenticated users, others can be conducted by unauthenticated users.

All the the items were fixed in OpenX 2.6 and backported to 2.4 when applicable. New versions of both OpenX 2.6 and 2.4 have been released.
