Critical Vulnerability in AhsayCBS v7 and AhsayCBS v8

Tue, 02/11/2020 - 10:11

We have recently uncovered a critical vulnerability, which exposes some versions of AhsayCBS v7 and AhsayCBS v8 to a very high risk of malicious attack and loss of data. The vulnerability could potentially allow a malicious attacker to: 1). Gain access the file system and all backup files on the AhsayCBS server, 2). Obtain a list of directories and files on the AhsayCBS server, 3). Delete files on the AhsayCBS server, and 4). Download files from the AhsayCBS server.

Termination of Support for mail level backups using MAPI Protocol on MS Exchange 2013 Cumulative Update 23 or above

Mon, 02/10/2020 - 03:30

Due to limitations and functional issues with (Messaging Application Programming Interface) MAPI backup mode, which is a Microsoft technology used by Ahsay to enable MS Exchange Server 2013 mail level backup and restores, starting from Microsoft Exchange 2013 Cumulative Update 23 or above MAPI backup mode may stop working. To avoid issues with Microsoft Exchange 2013 mail level backup and restores, it is strongly recommend to transition from MAPI backup mode to (Exchange Web Services) EWS backup mode as soon as possible.
