The upstream releases notes for version 1.2.7  indicate that if fixes several security-relevant bugs:
Version 1.2.7 (22 Jan 2013)
- Security fix: Do not show the reason for a failed login (i.e. "no such user")
- Security fix: Escape HTML characters in category name.
- Security fix: Check all passed in fields (either via HTML form or via
URL parameter) for certain malicious tags (script, embed, etc.) and
