Exclamation Security Announcement: PhotoPost Immune from EXIF PHP Security Flaw

There is serious security exploit floating about the Internet concerning the parsing of image EXIF data by PHP driven webapps. The result can be a stack overflow, thus allowing abitrary code execution on some operating systems.

Look for CAN-2004-1065 at this link for more info:

However, PhotoPost users are immune from this security flaw because we do not use PHP's exif extractor to obtain EXIF information from an image (its been unreliable for a long time).
Please do not PM me for support or sales questions. Thank you for your understanding.
