OpenSSL ‘Heartbleed’ Vulnerability

As many of you are aware, a critical security vulnerability has been identified pertaining to the OpenSSL 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f releases.  This is an industry wide security issue.  It is very important to identify and resolve this as soon as possible.

 

Please find below the official release from the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team:

 

Overview

A vulnerability in OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to expose sensitive data, possibly including user authentication credentials and secret keys, through incorrect memory handling in the TLS heartbeat extension.

Description

OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f contain a flaw in its implementation of the TLS/DTLS heartbeat functionality. This flaw allows an attacker to retrieve private memory of an application that uses the vulnerable OpenSSL library in chunks of 64k at a time. Note that an attacker can repeatedly leverage the vulnerability to retrieve as many 64k chunks of memory as are necessary to retrieve the intended secrets. The sensitive information that may be retrieved using this vulnerability include:

· Primary key material (secret keys)

· Secondary key material (user names and passwords used by vulnerable services)

· Protected content (sensitive data used by vulnerable services)

· Collateral (memory addresses and content that can be leveraged to bypass exploit mitigations)

Exploit code is publicly available for this vulnerability. Additional details may be found in CERT/CC Vulnerability Note VU#720951.

 

How does this impact your Servosity servers?

All servers pertaining to the Professional and Standard software are not affected by this vulnerability. These servers are running an earlier version of OpenSSL that are not affected. The Servosity web portal has been checked for the issued vulnerabilities as well.

 

Old Man Winter blows through….

As many of us in different areas of the US are experiencing nasty winter weather, this not only effects us individually but many businesses as well. A disaster can be a number of different things during this time of year – power outage, burst pipes, icy travels, etc. Recently Winter Storm Leon hit the southern areas from Texas all the way to Carolinas. Some areas took precaution to prepare for this storm, but others…not so much.

 

In Georgia, advanced warnings were given but immediate action wasn’t taken to prepare for the dangers this storm would bring. Atlanta was left in a Gridlock, children were stranded at their schools with their teachers for 2-3 days because parents were unable to reach them. While this is a physical weather disaster, the same speaks true for your clients data. A law office preparing for a huge trial looses all the case information, an accounting firm looses hundreds of tax return information, or a doctor office loses all their patients files all due to a server or network crash.

 

During these critical times you want to have reliable security and recovery at the touch of button. Servosity covers these areas and gives you the assurance that your clients data is safely backed up. Not only will your data be safe and secure, but in the event of a disaster, you will be able to pull your network from any remote device and be back up in business within minutes.

 

 

What steps are you taking to prepare for a disaster???

Damien Stevens speaks to Congress

Servosity CEO, Damien Stevens, was one of 4 individuals selected to testify to Congress concerning the Private Sector Resources for Entrepreneurs. Chaired by Rep. Tom Rice, Stevens spoke on providing education to business owners and entrepreneurs and how they effect small business growth as well as job creation. Read about this coverage here.

 

 

“Without organizations like NEXT, for entrepreneurs like myself, building a successful business with super strong growth rates like we have seen here at Servosity over the last three years, things would be much more difficult. The resources and contacts that are available to me as the owner and CEO are fantastic. The mentors and relationships I have built through NEXT have been tremendously helpful in growing our business,” said Damien Stevens

Top 25 Features of New Cloud Disaster Recovery Services

Top 25 Features of New Cloud Disaster Recovery Services

Servosity releases two new cloud based disaster recovery solutions. These online backup services meet or exceed each of the 25 key indicators of tier one disaster recovery services.

 

Servosity, provider of Backup and Disaster Recovery for MSPs (Managed Service Providers) and IT Resellers, announced today DR Server and DR Desktop. DR Server and DR Desktop are Disaster Recovery solutions that allow you to perform a Bare Metal Recovery to dis-similar physical hardware or recover VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines.

 

DR Desktop is designed for computers running desktop operating systems and DR Server is designed for server operating systems. Both provide the ability to backup physical and virtual machines and recover to any physical or virtual machine. Prior to the release of DR Desktop and DR Server, Disaster Recovery was too costly and/or too complex for MSPs and IT Resellers serving small and midsize businesses. Now they have a simple and cost-effective solution that not only works on Physical Machines, but works with VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and more. With no hardware required, and pay as you go pricing, the cost and capital barrier to entry is removed for small and midsize businesses.

 

Take the test; does your current disaster recovery provider measure up?
