Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite server software updated to version 10.0.1

February 16, 2017

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web has updated the server software in Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite to version 10.0.1 (REL-1000-201702110). The update delivers new features and resolves known issues.

The product incorporates a new Dr.Web server installer for Windows. The setup package doesn't use Windows installer and doesn't require any additional services.

Furthermore, the update addresses issues that interfered with the gathering of information about the system hardware and the applications installed on target hosts. Also resolved was an issue that could cause an error to occur when SQLite3 files were being truncated during database cleanups on machines running server editions of Windows. The size of a memory-mapped database file now can be changed via the Dr.Web Control Center.

The updated Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite is available through the Dr.Web Control Center web interface, where it will appear as an update dated 02.11.2017. The updated distribution files can also be downloaded from Doctor Web's site.

About the dangers of using online banking applications that rely on the insecure SSLv2 protocol

February 16, 2017

Doctor Web's technical support has received multiple queries from Dr.Web software product users who simultaneously use online banking applications that utilise the insecure SSLv2 protocol. To respond to all those queries and curtail the need for our users to ask such questions in the future, we’ll describe the issue in detail here in this news post.

Currently, because of multiple vulnerabilities in SSLv2, this protocol, as well as the applications that utilise it, is not secure.

Specifically, systems that use the protocol are vulnerable to MITM (man-in-the-middle) attacks as well as attacks that enable intruders to alter the course of data transfers. The MD5 caching routine of SSLv2 has also been compromised and is deprecated.

SSLv2 has been known to be insecure for quite a while. As long ago as 1996, it was superseded by SSLv3, which in turn was also found to be vulnerable (CVE-2014-3566). SSLv2 was officially rated as obsolete in 2011, in accordance with RFC 6176. Because of this, whenever a connection is established via SSLv2, Dr.Web notifies users about the danger.

Dr.Web user support requests clearly indicate that some online banking applications are still using the insecure SSLv2. Customer care staff of the banks involved have even recommended to users of ours, who have experienced problems with their applications because of Dr.Web, that they uninstall the anti-virus—something that would severely endanger the funds of their own customers.

Doctor Web recommends that insecure applications be updated. If no updates are available, users can continue using them by going into the Dr.Web settings and enabling the use of an insecure protocol.

If you choose to use an online banking application, ask the bank whether it uses a secure connection, and if it utilises SSLv2 or SSLv3, reject the use of the application.

Currently, the recommended protocols include TLS v.1 and later.

It will protect devices from unauthorised access, prevent data leaks over a network, control all Internet connections and data transfers, and block suspicious connections and potentially dangerous network activity, e.g., web camera data feeds.

The firewall for smart phones and tablets has also been upgraded. The firewall log can now be used to view all the website addresses the mobile device has attempted to access. The component will also block the download of malicious files over HTTP that attempt to take advantage of a widespread vulnerability known as Stagefright, which has yet to be closed on millions of Android devices.

All Dr.Web security incident notifications are now displayed in a single window so that users can assess the overall security situation and respond to new events in a timely manner.

The Dr.Web Security Auditor is now even better at discovering vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, the application incorporates a number of tweaks including some that improve how Dr.Web for Android operates on rooted devices.

Dr.Web Security Space for Android is available free of charge to Dr.Web Security Space and Dr.Web Anti-virus license owners.
