pcAnywhere software security vulnerability risk discovered
Posted by Tegan King on 30 January 2012 11:42 AM
It has been brought to our attention that Symantec, the makers of PCAnywhere, told their customers Thursday not to use pcAnywhere until Symantec can secure the PC remote control software following the theft of its underlying code by hacktivists.

This issue does not affect normal shared web hosting customers, but rather dedicated or cloud server customers who may be using pcAnywhere. Most EPhost dedicated or cloud server customers use Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) for remote PC access instead of pcAnywhere. None-the-less, we felt it was prudent to post this important news just in case you are using PCAnywhere on your server.

"At this time, Symantec recommends disabling pcAnywhere until Symantec releases a final set of software updates that resolve currently known vulnerability risks," Symantec said in the advisory.

Symantec found that the code came from 2006 versions of Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition, Norton Internet Security, Norton SystemWorks and pcAnywhere. Only the latter software contained vulnerabilities exposed as a result of the theft.

If your dedicated server has pcAnywhere installed and you are currently using it to manage the server, then you will need to remove or disable the software until further updates can fix the vulnerability.

New IP Address Change Completed
Posted by Tegan King on 24 January 2012 12:19 AM

We have completed converting to the new set of IP addresses for the EP1 Network previously using 71.6.174.X or 71.6.175.X. This move was made to ensure the best quality routing and networking for our valued customers. No changes have been made to IP’s on our EP2 Network (formerly Mallsoft).

New IP Sets:

We have moved the entire 71.6.174.X and 71.6.175.X networks to the new IP set on a 1:1 basis.

71.6.174.X = 64.87.22.X
71.6.175.X = 64.87.23.X

For example, if your IP address is 71.6.174.100 then it will now be 64.87.22.100. If your IP address is 71.6.175.44 it will now be 64.87.23.44.

Please make sure to check your website in the morning, and contact your developer if you encounter any errors. If you have any questions or concerns please email us at support@ephost.com.
