[SECURITY] Release of OMERO 5.2.8

Helen Flynn (Staff)
Dear All,

Today we are releasing OMERO 5.2.8. This is a security release to prevent users from deleting or editing official scripts and from accessing other people's data by adjusting the file path of their OriginalFiles so it points to other people's data in the repository.

Full details of the issues are available on:


This release does not upgrade the version of Bio-Formats which OMERO uses.

The software is available at:

Upgrade information is at http://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/support/omero5.2/sysadmins/server-upgrade.html

We highly recommend that all sysadmins upgrade their installations asap.
