It's already been a couple of weeks since we introduced you to our revamped console. And as we wrote at that time, we are not stopping there. We are always working on new stuff to make your life easier.
How long has it been since we have released new features on the console? Some of you might say quite a while and they would be right! That's because – besides the usual small changes, tweaks and fixes – we've been working on more visible things as of late which we are proudly introducing to you now!. Behold! The new console is here.
Yesterday two issues affecting CPUs have been released to the public.
TL;DR: the attacks are named Meltdown and Spectre. They allow reading the memory of the OS or of other processes, to steal secrets or get information for other exploits. A part of the solution can greatly affect performance of running code. In particular, this attack allows to easily cross container boundaries, and in some cases (not our case) even VM boundaries.
In addition to servers, consumer machines are affected, especially through browsers, so you should definitely update your operating system as well as your browsers.
We are quite excited to release a major new version of our Dashboard. It includes a lot of bug fixes as well as a few additions. We've included automatics payments, a design refresh, an activity feed, a better log management. And a nice GitHub integration too.
TL;DR: We are disabling the support of SSLv3 in front of our platform the Friday, 24th October.
CBC has already been disabled, mitigating the issue. The secure web is not for Internet Explorer 6 anymore.
