WordPress have just released security update 4.7.1, solving a series of security issues, where the most important is a remote code execution (RCE) in PHPMailer (see our previous status update):
WordPress have also released updates for several older versions:
As a reminder, WordPress versions older than these are not permitted for our webhotel customers due to their severe security vulnerabilities. Keep WordPress, plugins, and themes up to date!
2016-12-28 08:45: Critical security vulnerability in PHPMailer
A critical security vulnerability has been uncovered in PHPMailer, a software library used by many CMSes (Drupal, Joomla!, WordPress etc.)
Joomla! and WordPress are working on security updates. Until then, it is important that our customers perform the update manually.
Secure version: 5.2.20 (not yet released)
2016-12-14 11:22: Extreme spam volumes - update

We apologize for the inconvenience to our customers.
2016-12-14 10:50: Joomla 3.6.5 - kritisk sikkerhetsoppdatering
Joomla 3.6.5 is available as a critical security update.
This means that from now on, older Joomla versions than 3.6.5 may not be used with our hosting services. Upgrade now!
2016-12-13 15:05: Extreme spam volumes - e-mail delays
Due to an extreme volume of spam of 10-15 times the normal daily maximum, our incoming e-mail servers (mx.domeneshop.no) are struggling to handle the load. Incoming mail has therefore been delayed for several customers.
We are working on increasing the capacity of our incoming spam filters, in order to better handle legitimate e-mail.
We also see that other e-mail providers have challenges in accepting legitimate e-mail among all the spam, which regrettably also causes delays in sent e-mail.
2016-11-24 14:18: Slow incoming e-mail due to vast amounts of spam
Due to extreme amounts of incoming spam, there may be some delays in incoming legitimate e-mail.
This may also affect e-mail sent "internally" via webmail or smtp.domeneshop.no, to addresses handled by our incoming servers.
We apologize for the inconvenience. We are working on rejecting the spam more efficiently.
