All DSpace 1.7.x JSPUI users should upgrade to 1.7.3
DSpace 1.7.3 is a security fix release to resolve a JSPUI security vulnerability in the 1.7.x platform.
This security release includes the following fixes:
- Resolved security issue in JSPUI (DS-1603 - requires a JIRA account to access). This fix has been backported from the DSpace 3.2 release.
- Minor cleanup of the 1.7.x codebase so that it is Git/GitHub friendly. This means that 1.7.3 can now be forked or checked out from GitHub, using either Git or Subversion

We highly recommend all 1.7.x JSPUI users upgrade to 1.7.3.
