Upgrade jQuery version


SilkUI uses jQuery 1.8.3 (released November 13, 2012)

This version of jQuery is no longer supported by the vendor, as it has reached its endof-life. 

Versions from 1.6.3 to (and including) 1.8.3 have known vulnerabilities associated with them.

This jQuery can by default interpret script content received via $.get(), despite it originating from a third-party location. This version may also execute script content when supplied via class selectors.

Please stay up-to-date with 3rd party libraries. The current version is 3.1.

Kind regards,

Is the outsystems not a subset of 1.8.3 and slightly customized?

Furthermore, personally I am not keen on a newer version, because chances are it's more bloated.

It could be a subset, but the above vulnerability; is valid. And maybe there are even more. It is always the best to stay up-to-date because of security updates.

Funny enough we have an issue now with a security audit :(

So I need to like it now :D

Maybe the same Auditor?

Or just supply a more recent version as a possible choice in the espace configuration. So you can check and switch on your own time.

We've done implementations to bypass the default jquery version but you may get conflicts trying to load two versions.
