Information about price/modules changes in 4.6.0 release for current customers

Dear customers

We’re quite aware that our recent changes in billing model/platform may have caused unintended confusion – we’re here to straighten it up.

Pricing/renewal fees:
All changes in pricing/renewal fees are for new customers only. HostBill respects “grandfather rights”.
If by accident you did not received what you’ve paid for (renewal fee shows as different, your access to download shows as expired), please contact Licensing Department.

Paid Live Chat/Vies Plugin
You’re still free to use mentioned modules – those become paid for new customers only.
Bug fixes will be provided in future for both free and paid versions. New features will be introduced for paid versions.

Premium orderpages / clientarea themes
Update to newer version do not remove orderpages that came with your HostBill when you bought it or with updates up to recent version.
This means that you still are good to use orderpages you’ve bought with your HostBill.
Prices for orderpages listed as premium/paid are for new customers only.

Developer toolkit access
Access to dev toolkit is available for old customers only (anyone who signed up before 2013-05-24)

HostBill Security Patch for 2.X: Critical Security Issue

Dear Client!
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.
