Patch Notes

SMS appliance 10.6.3, patch #267

This patch supercedes and replaces patch 10.6.3-266

This patch addresses the following issues:

A potential remote code execution via the Control Center.

A potential for Cross Site Scripting in the Control Center.

The ability to enable or disable "Allow email addresses to start with a dash" was inadvertently removed in a previous release; this configuration option has been restored.

An issue where certain malformed Microsoft Office documents will fail to be detected or modified by the Disarm feature.

These document types will now be processed by Disarm in the expected fashion.

Notes:

   This patch is removable upon installation.
