    Open-Xchange releases OX Abuse Shield v2.6.1

    Open-Xchange is pleased to announce the release of OX Abuse Shield v2.6.1.

    OX Abuse Shield provides abuse-prevention for Web Applications (including Webmail), POP, and IMAP. It is integrated with both OX App Suite and OX Dovecot Pro to prevent login and authentication abuse as well as protecting against brute-force attacks.

    The goal of OX Abuse Shield is to detect brute forcing of passwords across many servers, services and instances, as well as enforce policy for authentication and authorization. In order to support the real world, brute force detection policy can be tailored to deal with "bulk, but legitimate" users of your service, as well as botnet-wide slow-scans of passwords.

    The new OX Abuse Shield v2.6.1 provides the following fix:
    • The drogon HTTP framework we now use for the REST API also allows file uploads, which we don't use. Unfortunately, by default it tries to create a bunch of directories in the working directory, which is usually not writable (e.g. /etc/wforce). This fix modifies the drogon upload directory so that the warnings do not occur.
    • Fix issue where webserver was not started before syncDB was kicked off, leading to syncDone failures
