Edgewave Alert - Block MS Office files with macros
Posted by Carlos R on 16 December 2016 01:32 AM

Block MS Office files with macros


In case you missed it in our previous announcement we have a NEW filter that allows you to quarantine messages containing MS Office files with macros. Malware in MS Office files is generally written using macros.

To enable this new filter go to the Domain Settings page and in the Filtering Options section look for the "MS Office file contains macro" filter.

Release notes, and all ePrism documentation, can be found at:

Sonian Alert: Microsoft Office 365 TLS Configuration
Posted by Carlos R on 10 December 2016 01:31 AM

Sonian Update: 12/12/2016

We have validated a change on our systems against O365 settings and have positive results.   We have deployed this change to Excel Micro accounts over the weekend. This change is now in place and any pending messages will be delivered. If there are any customers with pending messages please let us know.

__________________________________

Sonian has received reports from some customers that if their TLS configuration for journaling to Sonian is set at the strictest level in O365 it may lead to journal queuing and eventual non-deliverables.  It appears that a change on the O365 TLS validation was made earlier in the week.  No change was made on the Sonian side.  The Sonian certificates are valid but the configuration is failing a certificate validation check.


We encourage you to reach out to your customers to confirm the following connector TLS change:





We will keep you updated when the permanent solution is in place.

Regards,
Sonian

WebRoot - Product Notification
Posted by Carlos R on 01 November 2016 02:32 PM
Important Notice:
Re:  Deprecation of SHA-1, important notice for users of Windows Server® 2003 and Windows XP®  Operating Systems
 
If you are operating Webroot SecureAnywhere® products on a device that uses either the Microsoft Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 operating systems, we encourage you to update your operating system in order to ensure that Webroot SecureAnywhere products continue to offer you the best level of protection. 
 
Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP operating systems are not configured to use SHA-2 256 or higher encryption without corrective action. Microsoft has published a KB article here explaining the issue and resolution paths. 
 
In addition, in October 2015, Microsoft announced that Windows will stop accepting SHA-1 end-entity certificates beginning in January 2017. 
 
Therefore, beginning on November 28, 2016, Webroot will complete its adoption of SHA-2 in accordance with best practice for security service vendors. SHA-2 is considered the most secure of hashing algorithms to date and will provide additional protection and confidence to our customers. 
 
Action required:
If you are operating Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP operating systems you should read the Microsoft KB Article and take the appropriate corrective action where possible. 
 
Devices and servers operating Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP operating systems that are not updated or have not taken corrective action (e.g., Server hot fix or SP3 installed) will not have the full benefit of Webroot SecureAnywhere protection. 
 
Microsoft, Windows XP, and Windows Server are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and/or other countries.
