Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Razor (02/22/2007)

Subsequent releases of Razor address this issue and utilize a more robust encryption mechanism for the Razor password. If you are under maintenance, you have the option of upgrading to a more recent release of Razor at no cost. If you are not under maintenance and want to upgrade then you will need to contact Jennifer Stone at jstone@visible.com. Some additional notes ... - With version 4.1 and above, administrators of Razor may switch and use the local OS authentication instead of Razor’s authentication method. - OS permissions and protections always apply to the artifacts stored in the database. - This notice applies to users that have already logged into the supporting system. This primary means of defense is intact inspite of this particular vulnerability. - The next Razor release (due out in mid-2007) will allow remote UNIX clients to utilize SSH to authenticate the remote user. More information on this release and others may be found on the Visible Systems web site: http://www.visible.com/Products/Razor Please contact Visible Systems Corporation at 1-800-6-VISIBLE if you have additional questions.
