Security Bulletin: Use of Aspera products with Windows XP/IE 8


Due to OpenSSL vulnerabilities involving insecure ciphers (in particular, DES and triple DES ciphers), Aspera products will be disabling these ciphers across its products including:

  • Console
  • Enterprise Server
  • Faspex
  • Files
  • Orchestrator
  • Shares

This does not impact your use of these products unless you use them on Internet Explorer 8 and Windows XP.

Action to take

No action is necessary unless you normally use IE 8 on Windows XP. In this case, you may switch to an alternative browser (such as Firefox or Chrome) in order to continue using your products as expected.
