9Amberdms has issued a 1.4.1 maintenance release for the Amberdms Billing
10System to correct several bugs that have been reported as well as a
11couple minor security issues.
12
13We advise all users of older releases to upgrade.

17SECURITY ISSUES
18
19Two bugs have been identified - one that prevents the brute force
20blacklisting from functioning correctly and another that could result in
21some data shared between instances on multi-instance ABS installations.
22
23The brute force bug prevented brute-force blocks from working correctly,
24allowing an attacker to try and guess passwords by repeated attempts.
25
26
27The second bug only affects a very select number of users running
28multi-instance ABS installation. An issue was found where sometimes data
29could linger in the cache between nightly service usage processing.
30
31This did not appear to cause exposure of information but is being
32treated as security issue information exposure could potentially occur.
33
34Users of versions of ABS between 1.2.0 and 1.4.0 are affected and we
35recommend all users upgrade to 1.4.1.
