You may want to contact Andy about that, it sounds like there’s a bug in the SagePay add-on. I’ve let him know about this as well.

I’ve used so many plugins in the past and none of them have been as proactive as this.

Keep up the good work Marcus!

I have a sagepay plugin installed (relevant) and events manager pro.
After the update, Events manager did not reactivate itself (from 5.5.5 to 5.5.6), which I think might have happened before. Worse than that, though, was that my admin panel was now a white screen of death, and so was my website. Eek. [*Yes I did have a backup*]
Before resorting to the backup a quick look at the error log revealed the sagepay plugin was erroring out.
Went to plugins, zipped up sagepay to backup and deleted the sagepay folder (i.e. removed the plugin). Look at website – that’s now working but no events manager.
Look at admin (now working) – events manager is inactive, and events manager pro complaining that events manager needed to be installed.
Activate events manager – all looked good.
Unzipped SagePay plugin so that it’s active again. All looks normal. REMEMBER TO REACTIVATE THE PLUGIN (I didn’t at first!)
SO …. if you have add ons, do try checking the error log in the home directory and dealing with those first before panicking and reinstating your backup….
Thanks for the alert about the vulnerability.

The first priority in these situations for us is to fix the problem and make sure we get everyone updated to a safe version.

I look forward to getting back to you all with some good news regarding a ‘real’ plugin update soon :)
