Security alert

Later update: skip this and get the fix »

Hi guys,

We discovered a potential security breach in the jobberBase codebase, which would allow an attacker to mess with the database.

This affects versions 1.9, 1.8 and possibly 1.7.

Therefore, if you run a jobberBase site, we ask that you send us an email to, tell us your site’s URL and prove that you own it. Then, we’ll tell you what the problem is and offer you several ways to fix it.

We’ve chosen to tackle this problem like this because it’s quite sensitive — a public announcement of the issue could have negative effects on jobberBase-powered sites.

Thank you for your understanding!

    Hi, I’m considering to use your job board script at my web-site and I would like to know if you have already fixed the security breach on the new downloadable files (or are you just using this tactics only as a method to find out how many web sites are running your scripts) ?

    Hi Focal,
    You can safely download jobberBase, the security fix is in the downloadable file since we found the issue.

  3. how we can prove that site is oowned?

    Is this also part of JobberBase?

    Forgive me for asking so many questions: I’m not that much of a tech-savvy girl; just want to find a good job plugin/script for my WordPress-based website and want to find one that’s compatible and also has clean code.

    jobberRails is a port of jobberBase from PHP to Ruby on Rails. it’s not official, but we encourage Ruby/Rails fans to use it :) .
