Just a few months after the Heartbleed bug shattered the believed-to-be-secure SSL/TLS encryption layer status quo and put data transfers, emails, instant messages, etc. at risk, a new SSL vulnerability has been brought to light by Google experts.
According to Google researchers, a weakness in the SSL 3.0 protocol could be used to eavesdrop critical data that is transferred over an encrypted connection between web browsers, apps, etc. and servers.
The ‘new’ bug is called POODLE – an acronym for Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption.
The mechanism of the POODLE attack
The newly discovered POODLE exploit poses a great threat to online security, since it affects an old SSL version, which is still widely used by the majority of servers and clients.
Finally we’ve installed the latest bugfix-only version of PHP 5.6.0 on all our Hepsia based web hosting servers. With the whole bunch of improvements and new features, the release candidate showed all the potential to become the new stable version of PHP.
This is why, it comes as no surprise that the PHP Development Team announced today the immediate availability of the new official PHP version – PHP 5.6.0.
The login pages of our Hepsia Hosting Control Panel have been socialized, so our customers can now access their accounts through their social media profile(s) in Facebook, Google+ and Yahoo!.
Also, the social login functionality is set to work with multiple web hosting accounts at a time, so no matter how many accounts you have, you can log into all of them from your social media profile(s).
This is a great one-login solution for social media users, especially for those of you who have several hosting accounts, since there will be no need to remember tons of usernames and passwords.
