The following security notifications have now been made public. Thanks to OSS members for their cooperation. It also looks like OSS has accidentally issued us another identifier: CVE-2015-1493. I'm letting you know that I have never used it in our announcements MSA-15-0009: Directory Traversal Attack possible through some files serving JS Description: Parameter "file" passed to scripts serving JS was not always cleaned from including "../" in the path, allowing to read files located outside of moodle directory.
