Network Redux has formed an internal Research and Development group called Redux Labs to build enterprise services on top of our hosting infrastructure. Today I am excited to discuss our forthcoming data platform for Apache Cassandra, called Seastar.
On December 9th, security researchers announced a new vulnerability which affects the TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol. This flaw is related to the Poodle SSLv3 vulnerability (CVE-2014-3566) since it potentially allows attackers to intercept traffic between a user’s browser and an HTTPS website to decrypt sensitive information by forcing an encryption protocol downgrade by injecting malformed TLS packets.
Network Redux is auditing our infrastructure and the sites we host for our clients to determine which ones may be vulnerable. We will be applying TLS updates as they become available from vendors. In the meantime, you can check your site using a web-based tool available from SSL Labs (https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/) to determine whether this flaw is present in your SSL/TLS stack.
Our engineers will contact you if any specific action is required. Should you have additional questions or concerns, please direct communication to email@example.com which will open up a ticket in https://accounts.networkredux.com on your behalf.
At Network Redux, we’re always looking for ways to enhance the performance and reliability of our network, and that’s why we recently installed a new 10Gbps circuit from Spectrum Networks to improve carrier connectivity in our flagship data center in Seattle, Washington.
