Syncplify Server! v6.2.17 released

Importance of this update: MINOR
What’s changed?
  • Fixed small bug in the Admin UI that occasionally prevented the removal of cipher-suites from the HTTPS/WebClient! advanced configuration page (for experts only)

Syncplify Server! v6.2.12 released

Importance of this update: SECURITY HOT-FIX
What’s changed?
  • Fixed a vulnerability in one of the libraries used by the web UIs (SuperAdmin, Admin, and WebClient); for the record, this vulnerability was only exploitable in npm (node.js) so within the context of our software was non-exploitable, but we figured it would be better to update that 3rd-party library to its newer and bug-free version anyway.
  • Upgraded Go compiler, standard library and toolchain to the latest 1.21.2
