Joomla! 3.6.5 includes additional security hardening mechanisms prepared by the JSST, thanks in part to issue reports from Fotis Evangelou and Nicholas Dionysopoulos, which restricts a user’s ability to make potentially damaging configuration changes. This includes restricting the ability to set the „New User Registration Group“ and „Guest User Group“ to a group with Super User permissions and restricting the ability for a lesser privileged user to make user group assignment changes to users in a Super User group.
Additionally, we have modified the behavior of
to only return a boolean value. Previously, this method could return either a boolean value or null because the underlying call to
can also return a null value; neither
documented this though. We have determined that based on how the API is used that
should only return a boolean value. If a developer requires the previous behavior of a null return value (which indicates an „implicit“ denied state versus „explicit“ signified by boolean false), they should use
instead. The documentation for
has been updated to indicate the null return value as well.
