    Major Security Issue!

    Hi,

    It's possible to access: /umbraco/robots-txt/editRobotsTxtFile.aspx without being logged into umbraco! This came up in a security test of one of our umbraco installations last week.

    I haven't had a chance to run reflector on it and check, but it looks like the page doesn't inherit from umbracoBasePage, which checks if you're logged in.

    Any chance of a fix ASAP?

    As a temp fix, could you not use web.config security to deny access to that folder?

    Hi Tim,

    This has been fixed in the latest version (v3.0).  If you need a hotfix for the previous version (v2.0), let me know.

    - Lee
