Hey everyone! Here is an important message from SmarterTools...

Valued Customers,
We wanted you to be aware of a potential issue affecting any Windows 11 and/or Windows Server 2022 machines. (Older versions of Windows CAN be affected as well, but a specific Registry change needs to be made. ) This issue is not currently under active exploitation, and Microsoft has already issued a patch. However, we wanted you to be aware of it as it could possibly affect your business and personal machines.
Full details of the issue can be found below.

Official Microsoft Vulnerability Update - https://msrc.microsoft.com/update-guide/vulnerability/CVE-2022-21907#faq

Overview of the issue from Bleeping Computer - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-new-critical-windows-http-vulnerability-is-wormable/

Put simply, this issue affects a protocol that acts as a listener for processing HTTP requests by IIS. Bad actors can create worms that exploit this issue and spread malware between various vulnerable systems. As mentioned, however, it does NOT look like there is any active exploit out in the wild.

We'd strongly recommend you evaluate your systems and update any and all Windows 11 machines and/or Server 2022 servers to the latest "Patch Tuesday" release from Microsoft. While some Windows 10 and Server 2019 machines can be affected, it's only if their Registry was edited. For our part, we have already upgraded all machines to the latest release from Microsoft, so SmarterTools is unaffected by this issue.

Thanks for using SmarterTools products,

Hey everyone! Received this from ST and wanted to pass it along in case you did not see…

Valued Customers,

We wanted to make you aware of a potential issue with the “DNS Real-time Blackhole List" that is enabled by default in SmarterMail.

Over the last week, we have had customers contact support because their spools are backed up. In troubleshooting these issues we noticed they were directly related to this particular RBL. Looking into it further, it appears that the list is either experiencing some significant issues or it may be shut down. Until we know more, we advise all customers to either turn off Spool Filtering and Inbound SMTP for the list, or delete the list altogether.

If the list is, in fact, shut down, it will be removed from our default settings in an upcoming build.

Thank you for your continued use of SmarterTools products!

The SmarterTools Team
