Online Business Center 1.35 Release Notes

Release Date: Sunday, December 11, 2016

Release Number: 1.35


Fixed Issues

Corrected User Authorization

Previously, a system vulnerability existed, allowing unauthorized users to view or to modify agreement data if they changed the numeric value of the record parameter in the browser address bar.

This issue is corrected.

Corrected Information Vulnerability

The system uses the MD5 algorithm to hash all user passwords, meaning the alphanumeric user password is transformed into a fixed-length numeric value. When the hash value is passed to the source of the profile page, the value could be vulnerable to potential attackers. The attackers could, therefore, potentially compromise all passwords in the database.

This issue is corrected.

 

Enhancement

Cross-Browser Compatibility

Version 1.35 includes new logic, enabling cross-browser compatibility. Cross-browser compatibility ensures the Online Business Center correctly functions in several browser environments and degrades gracefully if a browser does not support certain features.
