The OpenSSL desaster, aka. Heartbleed Bug
2014-04-10 16:24

As many on the internet we also were surprised by the TLS heartbeat extension bug that OpenSSL contained in versions 1.0.1Beta1 to and including 1.0.1f.

As soon as the fixed version 1.0.1g was available in the night from monday to tuesday, we started to investigate which systems were affected by the issue and prepared the necessary updates.

The majority of systems, where OpenSSL is important, like our customers' HTTPS sites, were not affected by this issue at all as the involved system were running OpenSSL at the 0.9.8 branch, that was not affected at all. So there is no need to replace the SSL Certificates.

All systems affected by the issue were updated tuesday one after another, so they were not vulnerable anymore.

Major Control Panel Upgrade
2009-09-17 11:55

Lately we have improved our backend considerably with new clustered file systems and the secure high performance ServageOS. Now the time has come to a complete overhaul of the control panel layout we have used the last five years!

The new layout is considerably easier to use and includes many web 2.0 components, such as interactive help from the wiki and complete uptime reports. The navigation has been made more dynamic making the control panel faster to use.

One of the added benefits with this new CP is that it is designed to make it easier to add new functionality to our service. This will ensure that our service remains state of the art.

All enhancements have been made with our customers in mind and we hope that everyone will appreciate the changes. It is however a large change in the control panel so minor issues might occur and we hope that you will report such issues and improvement suggestions to us at bugs@servage.net.

The interface is online already so be sure to login to your account and check it out!

We would appreciate your comments in our blog :)
