Dear All,

Today we are releasing OMERO 5.2.4. This is a security release to fix the cleanse.py script used by the "bin/omero admin cleanse" command, which was not properly respecting user permissions and may lead to data loss.

Full details of the issue are available on https://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/products/omero/secvuln/2016-SV1-cleanse

The script and command have now been made admin-only. It is highly suggested that you upgrade your server or apply the patch available from the security page.

This release does not upgrade the version of Bio-Formats which OMERO uses, or feature any other updates.

The software is available at:

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