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 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: Please contact Visible Systems Corporation at 1-800-6-VISIBLE if you have additional questions.
