We have just released SilverSHielD version 188.8.131.52.
This new version features only one small change: it ensures that all directories and virtual directories have the “permissions” bits properly set in the “attributes” extension (SFTPv4+).
Warning: if you’re upgrading from a version prior to 184.108.40.206, installing this new version may lead to loss/invalidation of your license. So if you are a licensed customer, please, contact Extenua before applying this update/upgrade. Thank you.
This maintenance update fixes an annoying bug that affected only the 64-bit version of SilverSHielD and prevented the correct traversal of multi-level empty directory structures.
Even though this wasn’t a common issue, some of our customers needed such (empty) structures for unattended file transfer operations performed by clients they have no control on.
Also, the hardware identification algorithm (Hardware-ID) has been slightly modified to better address non-western character sets. So be careful: this update may invalidate your license, please contact Extenua if you’re planning on installing this update. Thank you.
We are happy to announce that a new version of SilverSHielD is available. The only significant change in this version is the ability to add entire networks and subnets (in the form 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0) to the Tarpit.
