FTP over SSL/TLS (secure connection)

Untuk lebih meningkatkan security kami menyarankan anda untuk menggunakan FTP over SSL/TLS agar keamanan komunikasi data lebih terjamin. Dengan FTP over SSL/TLS maka proses transfer data akan dienkripsi untuk menghindari pencurian username/password melalui proses network sniffing.

Bila pada saat login FTP anda menjumpai error sbb:

“Sorry, cleartext sessions are not accepted on this server.
Please reconnect using SSL/TLS security mechanisms.
Connection closed by remote host.”

Berarti SSL/TLS belum dienablekan, silakan enablekan SSL/TLS dan ulangi lagi login FTP anda.

Pastikan software FTP client yang anda gunakan mendukung SSL/TLS.  Berikut ini daftar FTP client yang support SSL/TLS dan cara settingnya:

Zen Cart Security Vulnerability Alert

If you are running a Zen Cart store, it’s important that you read this message and take action immediately.

A vulnerability has been discovered in the admin section of v1.3.8 (and previous versions). To take advantage of this vulnerability any attacker must know the URL of your admin section. As our security recommendations point out, you should change the folder that your admin resides in as soon as you installed Zen Cart.

SO — THE FIRST STEP YOU **NEED** TO TAKE is to rename your /admin/ folder!

However we realise that relying on this ‘Security through Obscurity’ is not foolproof, hence the release of a patch, which can be downloaded from the Zen Cart Support forum, here: http://www.zen-cart.com/forum/showthread.php?t=130161

The zip file there contains a readme.html with full details on how to install the security patch files. The security patch uses Zen Cart’s override system to make installation as simple as possible.

The security patch will work for previous versions in the 1.3.x series.

Older releases i.e v1.2.x are no longer supported and the patch has not been fully tested on those versions, however some parts of the patch should still work with v1.2.x (again see the readme.html file). However we strongly advise anyone using the 1.2.x versions to upgrade to 1.3.8 as soon as possible.

The Zen Cart Team takes security matters very seriously. But security is only as good as those who follow posted recommendations. Please apply the appropriate patches and security measures promptly, for your own benefit.

SUMMARY: Your Action Steps are:

Yes, if you haven’t already renamed your /admin/ folder, do it NOW!
