This week we received news of a critical vulnerabilities in PHP Melody. Issues include: SQL/code injection, PHPMailer vulnerability (see CVE-2017-5223) and a couple more.
To date, PHP Melody has been actively used on more than 29,000 separate websites in the past 9 years. Thankfully, we received no reports of sites being hacked via exploitable code in our video CMS. We’ve always patched vulnerabilities swiftly. In the past 9 years there have been only 4-5 occasions that promoted such releases.
A short while ago we celebrated 9 years of PHP Melody and today we’re preparing to welcome a new year.
Thank you all for your support and for choosing PHP Melody as for your online video needs.
May the new year bring joy and peace to you all.
Happy New Year!
Dear friends, this regular October week we’re celebrating an incredible 9 years of PHP Melody.
It’s pretty hard to describe in words what this means to our team. The only word that flashes into my mind is: a-mazing!
To put things into perspective a bit, this project is almost 1/3 of my life and has been a daily part of it for the past 9 years. One cannot talk about all this time without being grateful and thankful for the trust and continuous support which our work received form our many many customers and friends.
PHP Melody’s life so far has been nothing short of amazing (at least in my view). To date we released 29 PHP Melody updates and more importantly, helped 7958 people (our customers) bring their dreams online.
Some of you may remember that PHP Melody started out as a music video CMS (hence the name). Starting with v1.7 our ‘music video CMS‘ morphed into a ‘video CMS‘ during a big re-write. Looking back this was the best move as many more people could use the platform to create video sites. Here is PHP Melody’s entire life from October 15th, 2007 to present day.
As far as we’re concerned, Flash is dead. Firefox is the latest browser to drop support for Adobe Flash starting this month (August). They have very good reasons to bail on Flash but the writing has been on the wall for a long time for Flash.
