Important Notes:

  • #13793: The embed_provider configuration option for the Media Embed and Semantic Media Embed plugins is no longer preset by default.
  • The UI Color plugin now uses a custom color picker instead of the YUI 2.7.0 library which has some known vulnerabilities (it's a security precaution, there was no security issue in CKEditor due to the way it was used).

  • Fixed the behavior of HTML parser when parsing src/srcdoc attributes of the <iframe> element in a CKEditor setup with ACF turned off and without the Iframe Dialog plugin. The issue was originally reported as a security issue by Sriramk21 from Pegasystems and was later downgraded by the security team into a normal issue due to the requirement of having ACF turned off. Disabling Advanced Content Filter is against security best practices, so the problem described above has not been considered a security issue as such.
