Remote issue URL: Affected version:


In #101, we introduced detailed version information about the current instance to the help link.

This information is visible to everyone – even for not authenticated users – and might help bad guys to gather environmental information for targeted attacks. To mitigate this issue while still allowing targeted help later, I propose to reduce the version information there to only the major version.{Redmine::VERSION::MAJOR.to_s}

[#558] Reduce version info in help link


Updated by Holger Just at 2011-12-18 04:42 pm

Bumping this up. I'd really like to see that in 3.0.0.


  • Target version set to 3.0.0

Seeing as there isn't very much documentation written for each minor version, that's fine. (If you recall we were planning to keep mirrors of the docs for each version which is why the link is exact.)

Yeah, well it turned out we were a bit over-ambitious. And given that there are not many major changes in minor releases, it doesn't really require us to have that exact information.
