Previous changes from v1.14.1

  • 🚀 The 1.14.1 release has a security update to fix remote exploitation by DNS rebinding vulnerability noticed with remote debugging enabled by default on application launch.

    🔒 To address the security issue, the CEF debugger is disabled by default on application launch. Users who would want to enable debugging should launch Brackets from command line/terminal with the following command:

    Brackets.exe --remote-debugging-port=Port No

    💻 A toast notification will be shown in Brackets UI with the message “Remote debugging enabled on localhost:12345” for valid port number and remote debugging will be enabled. If port is not in the range between 1024 – 65534, the remote debugger is disabled on launch and a toast notification will be shown with the message “Cannot enable remote debugging on port <>. Port numbers should be between 1024 and 65534.”
