HostBill 2.x security patch.
Last night one of our client notified us about potential security threat affecting HostBill versions 2.x, which may allow to access admin area with previously stolen session cookie.
Please download this patch as soon as possible: https://hostbillapp.com/clientarea/index.php?cmd=module&module=downloads&file=11
To apply patch please extract archive contents in your HostBill directory, or upload its contents directly to your install (there is only one file that requires overwriting).
We’re not aware of any installation compromised other than reported last night.
If you have questions or any concerns please feel free to contact us. We do apologize for any inconvenience.
Note: 2.8 version download package contains this patch by default from now on, 2.9 version that is scheduled to release next week will also contain it.
Want to build module for HostBill? Not a problem!
We’ve been working recently on DevKits, documentation and examples so you can integrate virtually anything with HostBill now!
– Custom Product Types (work in progress)
Stay tuned for next updates – I’m off trying to hook up coffee machine API with HostBill 😉
HostBill users recently reported issue with OnApp 2.1RC4 module.
When creating billing plan using API its not possible to create machine as client, as OnApp throws HTTP500 + bad response error.
We’ve created patch for OnApp Full-Featured module 2.1. To apply it please download your copy of module again from our clientarea, and extract archive contents
in main HostBill directory.
This patch hard-codes clients’ cpu-shares to unlimited (its not setting cpu-shares limit in OnApp), and for new machines created from HostBill clientarea it sets cpu-share to 1, despite of slider settings.
This is temporary patch, once OnApp will fix this bug with next RC/Stable version we will upload regular version of module with working CPU-Shares limit.
