Our hosting partner is doing necessary maintenance and upgrades on the file storage system on Saturday, June 7. This involves all customers with a Fronter URL of the format fronter.com/customername.

The maintenance work is scheduled to occur between 12 and 13 CEST. During this maintenance window we expect two occurrences of slowness less than one minute each when accessing files stored in Fronter.

Microsoft has issued a warning about a vulnerability in its Internet Explorer browser, which could allow hackers to access and remotely control a user’s computer. The flaw is present in version 6-11 of Internet Explorer and could be exploited if users visit an infected or compromised website.

While your Fronter installation remains to be a safe website, please be alert for attempted 'phishing' scams (an approach where hackers pose as a trusted company in order to gain users' personal details). This is the most common way for this vulnerability to be exploited, and we recommend the following:

 

  • Never, ever respond to emails requesting personal information, such as usernames and password. Fronter employees or administrators never request any such information.
  • Always delete email from unrecognised sources or which contains suspicious content, attachments or links.
Update: a patch is available from Microsoft. Please see here (msdn.com).
