HW Upgrade OC48 upgrade will 4x our current bandwidth capacity.

We are in the process of upgrading our BellSouth SmartNet ring to enable the next phase of growth. The OC48 upgrade to our ring will give us 4 times our current bandwidth capacity.

The BellSouth engineers will run all new fiber for this ring, so that the current OC12 ring will carry all traffic while the new ring is being constructed and tested. When testing is complete, the existing circuits will be moved, one at a time, onto the OC48. Absolutely no downtime is expected during the transition, only brief periods of packet loss as routing tables automatically update. Moreover, we are adding a 4th OC3 to give us additional capacity.

Security Audit Searched for old versions of dangerous formmail.cgi.

We conducted a formmail.cgi and bformmail.cgi security audit of all of our clients web sites to determine if anyone needed us to update their formmail.cgi or bformmail.cgi scripts.

This is due to the recent discovery by the authors of each script and their public announcements of how serious of a security problem can be if the upgrade isn't done.  We performed this upgrade for all of our clients that were using the older versions.

For more details regarding this, visit Matt's Script Archive.
