We're dealing with PHP code for most of ToolsLib services, which means that despite the efforts in writing a secure code we still have to regularly mitigate regular CVE found in PHP components. While we have been very reactive to apply fixes, it's better if we can take pro-active measures.
Snuffleupagus has proved to be a very valuable tool so far. Its integration is a major improvement for the security of all the services that we provide, and we deeply care to keep our data safe, especially the one of our users who trust us millions times each month.
The new certificate for https://toolslib.net is now online. It is valid from 15/04/2016 to 11/05/2018. We've also published several improvement regarding TLS support on ToolsLib.
ToolsLib recently switched to a brand new dashboard. However, behind the scenes, there was another switch happening. We used block based filesystem for underlying storage. However, as we grew, the filesystem was proving difficult to scale.
So, we were looking to move from block based storage to an object store system, when we found Minio. After initial analysis, Minio looked perfect for our requirements and we switched to Minio.
As the number of hosted software is increasing a more advanced management system was needed. During the past year we've studied the usage that are made not only on ToolsLib but on several other platforms, and following our conclusions we have published our new branded dashboard.
2016 has seen a lot of underlying changes on ToolsLib. Most of them were improvements to the current services, but we've also prepared the path towards all the new features that will appear in 2017.
As some of you may have seen during the last hours, we're proud to announce that AdwCleaner is now part of the Malwarebytes family.
Following Malwarebytes initative to be more agressive on PUP (potentially unwanted programs) , it feels natural for AdwCleaner to associates with Malwarebytes in order to reach this goal and actively fight these unwanted software.
