Subject Re: CVE-2015-5204: HTTP header injection vulnerability in Apache Cordova File Transfer Plugin for Android
Date Tue, 22 Sep 2015 18:25:54 GMT
Hey

This means that you should upgrade your file transfer plugin ASAP.
Security release notices will be sent to the dev list once the security
release has been issued.  It's likely that your applications on Google Play
may be temporarily suspended until you update your plugin.
