Kentico 10 hotfix 50 - what is the issue?

Laurence Middleton asked on April 25, 2018 00:21

I upgraded a large Kentico installation (multiple sites) from 8.1 to Kentico 10. The latest hotfix when I did the work was Kentico 10.0.50.

We noticed today that hotfix 50 is no longer listed at https://devnet.kentico.com/download/hotfixes - there is now a hotfix 51 following hotfix 49. I can't find a note explaining why hotfix 50 was removed.

I'm wondering: * is it strongly recommended to apply hotfix 51, and will it fix whatever was wrong in hotfix 50? * if any flaw in hotfix 50 dealt with pass-through authentication, since I am having issues adding Helicon APE (for a Basic Authentication challenge, to protect a QA site) and it worked just fine on the site (and others) before the Kentico 10 upgrade.

Hi,
The hotfix 10.0.50 contained an error which occured under special circumstances and could corrupt UI elements. So the #50 hotfix was replaced with new one - no. 51. So, I would recommend applying the hotfix no.51.

The last hotfix (51) was to fix a found "Security Bug." I put in quotes only because it's a security bug that can only be exploited by someone who as Editor accesses (access to a certain unsanitized UI input).

No clue what happened to 50 though, perhaps they rolled it into 51...
