Dear All,

Today we are releasing OMERO 5.2.5. This is a security release to fix the OMERO.shares API which was bypassing intended security restrictions and granting elevated privileges to read otherwise-restricted data.

Full details of the issue are available on http://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/products/omero/secvuln/2016-SV2-share

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
