Increased Application Security with Patchman

logoEnsuring the security of our customers’ web sites is a top priority for us at Kualo. In recent years we have been a dramatic increase in malicious attempts to compromise an innocent web site. Generally these “attacks” are by hackers or spammers, who aim to control a web site in order to send out spam, distribute malware or host phishing content, or to use the compromised site to launch attacks on other web sites or servers.

This vulnerability allows a hacker to view the plain text contents of secure connections over SSL 3.0. Continue Reading →
