Tiki 1.8.4 is available since 2004-08-01.

Tiki admins running 1.8x are strongly urged to upgrade to this version due to a vulnerability in versions 1.8 through 1.8.3 that allows individual wiki page permissions to be bypassed. Several path disclosure vulnerabilities have also been removed in the smarty_tiki area.
