Field Alert: Security Updates for Xinet and Xinet Portal

North Plains have released security patches in response to recent widely publicised vulnerabilities in applications services across the World Wide Web. Please refer to their channel announcement, excerpted below:

With all the attention given to software security recently (Heartbleed and the Internet Explorer bug), additional security audits were run.  Potential vulnerabilities in Xinet software were identified, all of which have been addressed in the patches.

Proper administration of Xinet-based server systems and attached network environments lowers the risk of exposure greatly. However, ensuring that Xinet software is coded securely is also necessary.

Security hardening is a very high priority for North Plains product development. North Plains leverages the industry-leading Veracode scanning service to help ensure as many potential issues are flagged and fixed as possible, but given the shifting landscape, this is an ongoing effort.

The patches are available from our server, at the following URL:


All servers, especially those with external-facing Portals, should be updated urgently. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance.
