[RESOLVED] Necessity of Upgrading point releases?

At: OpenWrt Project

I see the current stable release is:

Current Stable Release - OpenWrt 19.07.3

I'm running 19.07.2

is there a security update here? I looked at the ChangeLog, but to my dismay, it's too detailed for a non expert.

Yes, there is always security patches on a service release. If you are concerned about security, I would say a service release is more important to get than the next version.

They are at the bottom of the changelog (also scroll up for non-security bugs)

### Security fixes

* [Security Advisory 2020-05-06-2 - relayd out-of-bounds reads of heap data and possible buffer overflow (CVE-2020-11752)](https://openwrt.org/advisory/2020-05-06-2)

* [Security Advisory 2020-05-06-1 - umdns out-of-bounds reads of heap data and possible buffer overflow (CVE-2020-11750)](https://openwrt.org/advisory/2020-05-06-1)

* [Other security fixes](https://openwrt.org/releases/19.07/changelog-19.07.3#security_fixes)

The release notes that I linked, offer maybe a bit more understandable overview to the changes than pure git changelogs or the release changelog compiled from git commit messages.

Thnx for the swift responses.

Is it possible to do this point upgrade within the LuCI?

Yes. (for most routers)
