All systems worked perfectly in April.
We pushed 75 software upgrades to our production systems.
Among them a new HTML5 based drag and drop upload module.
The previous version had a 2GB file size limit. The new one
has simply none. Which means that the entire INTERDUBS system
can now handle files of unlimited size.
This month the Heartbleed vulnerability was a big topic on
the Internet. We run our core systems with a conservative
feature set: We use established system software and patch
it for security issues if needed. Instead of just using the
‘latest greatest’ without a specific feature requirement.
We simply never saw the benefit of the OpenSSL Version 1.0.1
that was affected by this flaw.
This resulted in the pleasant fact that none of our
systems were ever impacted by this huge potential problem.
