Over the past few months Mango Automation has undergone in-depth security vetting by two independent security firms, Source Incite and Zero Science Lab, in an effort to find any security vulnerabilities. Their thorough testing revealed some potential vulnerabilities of which, most of, have already fixed in Mango 2.6.0 RC3 build 430 or higher and the remainder are currently in development to be included in the final release of Mango 2.6
We are working with the Department of Homeland Security’s ICS-CERT division: https://ics-cert.us-cert.gov to issue an advisory that recommends all users upgrade to 2.6
We expect to be releasing Mango Automation 2.6 with all it's new features and more robust security on Tuesday October 20th with more information to follow this post.
How to do a test upgrade
You can download Mango Automation 2.6.0 build 430 here We recomend you do an offline test upgrade by duplicating your database and Mango installation and running the upgrade. We will be providing more detialed release notes but you can also familurize yourself with some of the new features and changes here: http://infiniteautomation.com/forum/topic/1872/new-features-coming-soon
To perform a manual test upgrade download the m2m2-core-2.6.0.zip file into your backup Mango home directory. If using a MySQL database be sure to duplicate the database and use a copy for the test upgrade.
Restart Mango on the Modules page or by ./ma.sh stop and then ./ma.sh start.
When starting up with a file named m2m2-core-2.6.0.zip in the home folder, Mango will remove the current MA_HOME/lib folder and then unzip the m2m2-core-2.6.0.zip file and will then finish with the upgrade.
