  • Windows Control Panel Fixes – Let’s Encrypt

    No comments June 2nd, 2017 176

    Our developers have fixed an error that was causing some Let’s Encrypt certificate renewals to fail. Customers may have received an email stating that the automated renewal failed with an error that looked similar to the one below.

    A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated.

    We appreciate the continued feedback we are receiving to further improve our control panel services.

  • SmarterMail Upgrade

    9 comments May 16th, 2017 188

    SmarterMail v16 is now released after many months in beta testing. We have been working with SmarterTools as well as many of our largest customers in testing and polishing of the beta and can say this is the most rock-solid SmarterMail released we have seen since we started with SmarterMail back at v1. This new build is a completely different SmarterMail than what our customers are used to seeing and using. A completely rewritten interface, many new features and more! For more information about what is new, checkout the new What's New article here https://www.smartertools.com/smartermail/whats-new#/mail-content-current

    The upgrade will take place this evening at 10PM MDT. This is a major upgrade of the SmarterMail system, so our administration team is giving this upgrade 1 hour to make sure it is completed correctly.

  • WannaCry (and variants) Ransomware Outbreak

    No comments May 13th, 2017 130

    We have been flooded with questions related to the recent NSA leaked exploit turned Ransomware, so we would like to discuss these concerns publicly.

    First, our servers are patched and protected (since the update was released back in March). As well, none of the servers that ASPnix directly manages (such as web servers, mail servers, hyper-v hosts and SQL hosts) run the SMB v1 server that is being exploited by the W* Cry Ransomware.

    We recommend that customers who manually manage their Windows Updates, update their systems ASAP. Customers who rely on ASPnix to manage their dedicated servers (such as Greenfolders hosted customers) are already patched and have nothing to worry about. A good update plan and procedure should be #1 priority if you are running and maintaining your own server.

    Our network security team has started blocking ports 135, 137, 138, 139, 445 globally across our networks to prevent any exploits from occurring on unpatched customer systems.

    More information about this exploit can be found here – https://blog.varonis.com/massive-ransomware-outbreak-what-you-need-to-know/

    More information related to the patch from Microsoft can be found here – https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx

    This exploit is not targeting just Windows servers, Microsoft has released patches for Windows 10 all the way down to Windows XP. So make sure you check for updates on your home and workstation Windows computers as well!

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support department and we will be happy to help you!
