DCE new connectors image.jpgONELAN has added two new Connectors to its Data Collection Engine (DCE) that support the two market leading property management systems, Micros Fidelio Opera® and Newmarket International Delphi®. These systems are designed to meet the requirements of any size hotel or hotel chain.
The new Connectors enable users to extract event information from their existing Opera® or Delphi® hospitality systems and deliver it directly to their digital signage.

On 7th April 2014, security researchers announced a recently-discovered vulnerability, CVE-2014-0160 (dubbed Heartbleed), in a popular and widely used cryptographic library OpenSSL. This weakness makes it possible for someone to steal information normally protected by SSL/TLS encryption. In conjunction with the announcement the OpenSSL community released a fix for this vulnerability. The Fedora community back ported this fix to Fedora based systems on 8th April, 2014.

ONELAN picked up the patch the same day and immediately ported the fix back into affected ONELAN products. We have been evaluating the fix on all affected ONELAN products and testing the products for potential side effects.

We are in the process of releasing software updates to fix the vulnerability after ensuring that ONELAN systems continue to be reliable. As part of this fix, we have also reset the certificates and keys as a security measure. If you were using Custom SSL certificates, please get a new set of certificates and install the new certificates. Post the software update, you are advised to update your passwords.

If you are concerned about the likely impact of this vulnerability on systems that are exposed to the external internet, you can further mitigate the risk by whitelisting the IP addresses that you know are safe and blocking everything else in your network firewalls.

The following products are affected and have a software update available or in the process of being made available:

NTB 9.0 and above - Update to 9.3.7. Before updating your NTB, please ensure your software is between version 9.2.4 - 9.3.6
