NOTE: The 6.3 releases of Tectia Client/Server/ConnectSecure are supported until May 2016. It is possible to further extend the support of Tectia Client and Server until May 2017. There will be 6.3 maintenance releases which will fix critical bugs, but no new features will be added to any 6.3 release.

The 6.3.14 releases include the following items:

Changes in platform support (Windows):

  • Tectia Client and Server now support Windows 10

  • Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are no longer supported

Critical bug fix in Tectia Server on Unix:

Fixed input validation when starting X11 forwarding. Users without shell access to the system could bypass the restrictions by using techniques outlined in CVE-2016-3115. As a mitigating factor, even without the fix, the output of the commands was not visible to the users, so the vulnerability in this case is limited to creating files and outbound connections with the privilege level of the authenticated user. This vulnerability is limited to configurations with restricted user accounts (forced or denied commands, denied shells).

For further information about the products and changes between the different versions, and instructions on how to update the product, see the customer documentation and release notes at the SSH product documentation site.
