Fri, 11 Apr 2014 16:43:53 +0000 https://linuxcounter.net/news.html#55 The following security problem in OpenSSL is fixed on the linuxcounter.net:

The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users.

  • The server environment has changed! We are now using nginx together with the varnish cache, php-fastcgi and the standalone server of trac. Actually the varnish cache is deactivated, because of some configuration issues I still have to figure out. But the access and the responses are much faster than before with Apache.
    This was initiated due to very high load on the server because of an article about our project on slashdot.org.
  • We now have a completly newly rewritten update script! This script now uses native bash and doesn't rely anymore on a mailserver. It now also detects the distribution and its version. And it also contains an update notifier if the version you have is too old.
  • Login process and session management completly rewritten. There was an error in the session management that has caused a new session on every click.
  • Added the display of online users record on bottom of the page.
  • Machine summary statistics finished.
  • Implemented much nicer bars for percentage display
  • Many, many other smaller changes and fixes in the background...
