Security Advisory – Staff Permission Escalation

February 12, 2014 | Posted by Cody

Affected Versions

Versions 3.0.0 through 3.0.8, and 3.1.0 are affected.


Active and valid staff members may be able to gain additional permissions through crafted URLs. Because this issue requires that the user have an active and valid staff member account, this is classified as a Moderate vulnerability. Patch release 3.0.9 and 3.1.1 corrects this vulnerability.


If you are running 3.0.x upgrade to version 3.0.9. If you are running 3.1.0 upgrade to version 3.1.1.

New for Developers in 3.1

January 15, 2014 | Posted by Cody

Blesta 3.1 is loaded with great new features, but we didn’t forget about developers either. Here are a few new items developers can take advantage of in 3.1.

Improved CLI Installer

The command line installer gets non-interactive mode support in 3.1. This allows integration services to automate installation of Blesta. Read more about CLI installation.

Extensions Simplified

Plugins, Modules, and Gateways now support a config.json file that defines basic details such as author, name, version, and more. This greatly reduces the redundancy and maintenance across extensions, simplifying the development process. See configuration for Plugins, configuration for Modules, and configuration for Gateways for more details.

New Events

Almost a dozen new events have been added in 3.1. Of course, every event added opens up endless possibilities for new Plugins. See all events here.

Updated API

New features equals new and updated API commands (including Plugins). Check out the source code documentation.

Version 3.1 is currently in beta with a final release due out this week.

Blesta 3.1: Beta Released

December 20, 2013 | Posted by Paul

We’re excited to announce that Blesta 3.1 beta 1 has been released. If you didn’t receive the announcement email, you can view it online here. The release notes are also available here.



We’ve been working on 3.1 for a while now, and it’s time for a beta! Betas are open to direct customers, and the download is available now within the client area. Login at, click “Downloads”, then “Betas”, then 3.1.0-b1 download.

During installation, select to start a 30-day free trial unless you have another license available, such as a development license. If you need help, please open a ticket.

If you don’t have a Blesta license yet, you can still get into the Beta. Now’s a good time to buy!

Once you get the beta installed, head on over to the forums and let us know what you think. Your feedback is very important to us, and will help us get to a final release as quickly as possible.
