TimThumb Security Vulnerability

Hey guys!

It was brought to our attention today that Tim Thumb, (the image resizing script) we use in all our themes has a serious security vulnerability. We will be releasing updates to all themes and framework by tomorrow. It is crucial that you make every effort to update your files.

Tim Thumb is a script that resizes images on the fly and it is used by many themes for WordPress and therefore an extremely popular script. The author of the script is updating/patching the files as I write this post.
