atvise® 2.5.2 released!
01.07.2014, atvise® 2.5.2 is Ready for Download
The release of atvise® Version 2.5.2 includes several bug fixes as well as the two patches that were necessary due to the OpenSSL security updates for the previous atvise® Version 2.5.1. For more information on implemented bug fixes as well as the update process please see the release notes on our website. Simultaneously we have updated the list of web browsers that have been tested with atvise®, which can also be found on our website in the system requirements.
New OpenSSL security update
18.06.2014 - OpenSSL offers a new security update, which we provide here as a new patch download for the atvise software. This patch includes also the original libraries, which were provided against the "Heartbleed Bug". If the previous "Heartbleed Bug" patch from April has been installed as recommended by us, it will simply be overwritten with the new patch. For atvise ® SCADA versions 2.3 to 2.5.1, we strongly recommend to download and install the new DLLs on all systems in use. This also applies to atvise opcua2s7 Server version 1.0 (even if it was not originally affected by „Heartbleed Bug”). Detailed installation instructions are included in the patch ZIP-file as a “Readme” file.
For atvise webMI2ADS (all platforms) an update will be offered in the near future. For the atvise box with image version 1.0 (see atvisebox.log) we kindly ask you to contact our sales team.
OPC Day Europe 2014 short review
14. - 15. May 2014, Stuttgart (Germany)
190 participants from 15 countries took part in the conference "OPC Day Europe", which was hosted by the company FESTO in Esslingen. Certec, as a member of the OPC Foundation and pioneer in OPC UA technology, were represented with its own booth at this event of the OPC Foundation and showed the advantages of the OPC UA standard based atvise scada solution. At the conference it became clear that one is well prepared with OPC UA for the challenges of the "Industry 4.0" (see brochure "OPC UA - pioneer of the industry 4.0"). On the event itself experts gave information on technical updates on OPC and OPC UA, information modeling and certification.
We look forward welcoming you next year at this event.
Important Security Update: Heartbleed Bug
As reported, atvise® scada (2.3 and above) is using libraries with the "Heartbleed Bug" but wasn't affected by known attacks.
We now face new kinds of attacks found nearly daily, trying to exploit this weakness.
To be on the safe side, we therefore decided to distribute the new libraries (OpenSSL 1.0.1g), where the "Heartbleed Bug" is fixed itself.
We highly recommend to download the new DLL and install it on all systems where SSL in atvise® scada 2.3 and above is being used.
The DLLs and the install instructions can be found here:
For atvise scada on the atvise box no update is needed!
Please distribute this information to your customers.
We apologize for any inconveniences and thank you for your assistance.

Versions 2.4.1 to 2.5.1

We refrain from sending Christmas whishes by card again this year. As always we want to send the money to non-profit organizations instead. This year we are supporting the „Team Österreich Tafel“ of the Austrian Red Cross in Eisenstadt.
