A security problem has been discovered in OpenX Ad Server v2.8.2, enabling anyone to log in as an Administrator. This is obviously an very serious problem, because it renders any OpenX Ad Server vulnerable.

An emergency fix has been developed and released as OpenX Ad Server v2.8.3. The new version is available for immediate download at the OpenX website. The OpenX Blog provides background information and tips for security precautions.

Update April 13, 2010: it appears that an exploit for the vulnerability in OpenX v2.8.2 is making the rounds on the internet, infection these old versions with a back door and breaking the display of the on-screen statistics.
