Security updates

  • Installers and updaters are digitally signed for installation on OS X 10.9 and 10.10.
  • Added support for additional security certificates from supported SSL vendors. See FileMaker Knowledge Base answer 11413 .  
  • Addressed an issue that could have allowed a man-in-the-middle attack to force FileMaker Server to use a less secure cipher.
  • (OS X) Disabled SSL 3.0 in the Apache web server used by FileMaker Server. SSL 3.0 has a known man-in-the-middle attack vulnerability referred to as “Padding Oracle on Downgraded Legacy Encryption” (POODLE).
  • Addressed an issue where configuration files could be accessed from remote machines.
  • Because of a possible security exposure, the XML and PHP web publishing technologies are disabled by default. To enable these technologies, you should have a valid digital certificate installed. If you do not have your own signed certificate or if you are using the standard FileMaker certificate, then do not enable these technologies.
