Version 3.73.03920 (4 MAR 2021)
Several extremely critical defects are addressed in this release. As such, we urge all of our customers in the strongest of terms to upgrade to this release as soon as possible.
- [CRITICAL] Bug fix (DEV-2131) - The internal device ASN limits were reached, and we have extended them in this release. This is critical - devices without this fix will continue to use the ASN and country registration information as of February 19, 2021, and will not be able to receive updated ASN information from our central GMC management platform until this software release is installed.
- [CRITICAL] Bug Fix (DEV-2103) – Include fix for the highly-publicized CVE-2021-3156 Linux ‘sudo’ vulnerability
- [CRITICAL] Bug Fix (DEV-2110) – Fix issue where domains were not being checked against the lists in a case-insensitive manner
- [CRITICAL] Bug Fix (DEV-2099) – Fix issue where large threat intelligence feeds could get in a reset loop if they take too long to finish resetting
- Feature (DEV-2101) – Include per-bridge traffic statistics in healthcheck metadata
- Feature (DEV-2100) – Ensure all traffic passes in both directions if a device license expires
