Why it’s important to keep everything updatedgozen
Let’s be honest, there’s no such thing as 100% secure environment and since we are on the Internet, security is a constant fight against vulnerabilities, one of them was only recently discovered and affected millions of websites and mainly web servers.
Exim the default email server for cPanel based hosting accounts was found guilty…even though it was not so easy to manage to take advantage of this vulnerability.
Exim servers, estimated to run nearly 57% of the internet’s email servers, are now under a heavy barrage of attacks from hacker groups trying to exploit a recent security flaw in order to take over vulnerable servers.
Hacker groups have been identified carrying out attacks, some of those were operating from a public Internet server while others located on the dark web.
The solution to this problem was obviously to update everything to the latest and apply the proper patches in order to avoid getting your server compromised. So far so good, specially if you were among the lucky ones that were still not under attack…but, this update/patch also brought some issues that were hidden so far.
Users, many times fail to update their email clients…and because of that…they were unable to connect and use their email due to incompatibility issues.
