Revolution 2.2.13—Fixes Critical Security Issue

Today we released MODX Revolution 2.2.13. This is a patch release that corrects an extremely critical security vulnerability that exists in all versions prior to and including 2.2.12. As this is a security release it should be considered a mandatory upgrade.

If you are unable to upgrade to 2.2.13 and are running Revolution 2.2.6 through 2.2.11 inclusive, you can replace the modx.class.php with the one from the relevant 'pl2' tag in the MODX Revolution repository. If you are running 2.2.12 you can use the modx.class.php file from 2.2.13.

E.g. for v2.2.10-pl it would be:

For releases prior to 2.2.6, please contact MODX Support for assistance patching your version, or to get help with an upgrade to 2.2.13.

For MODX Cloud users, we have enabled preventative measures to protect against this vulnerability, giving you more time to upgrade your sites.

If you need help upgrading your site, please contact your website builder or find a MODX Professional.

The next patch release, 2.2.14 will include the changes that were originally to be in 2.2.13 in GitHub.

MODX Diagnostics

MODX’s Open Source software is 100% free for anyone to download and use. As the team behind it for more than a decade, we know it inside, out, and then some.

Like any software, sometimes things break; we can usually fix them very fast. But, we do have to charge for our time to support our families and fund its ongoing development. There are almost an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more. We will save you a lot of time and frustration, and get you back in action.

With our MODX Diagnostic service, we determine the source of issues, and often fix them on the spot. For more extensive problems needing more time, like hacked sites or overdue upgrades, we provide additional estimates and guidance. MODX Diagnostics cost $99 for standard business hours support (US Central Time), or $500 for priority, rush or after-hours emergencies.

If you don’t have budget for professional support from the source, you look for answers in the MODX Forums or Documentation, or seek help from MODXers in the Community Slack, or from MODX Professionals near you.
