Security release of OMERO 5.2.5

The OME team is pleased to announce the release of OMERO 5.2.5

back to Announcements

Today we are releasing OMERO 5.2.5. This is a security release to fix the OMERO.shares API which was bypassing intended security restrictions and granting elevated privileges to read otherwise-restricted data.

Full details of the issue are available here: 2016-SV2-share.

This release does not upgrade the version of Bio-Formats which OMERO uses.

The software is available from archived downloads.

Upgrade information is available in the server upgrade page.

For any problems or comments, please use the OME forums or mailing lists.
