Service Updates

  • Encrypted Bridges option has been added to the order form for new customers. Existing customers can request it by contacting support . Please, note that it’s unstable and may fail at any time without an easy way to fix it.
  • A new service is now being offered: Custom Development . If you have a feature you want to implement within one of our open-source projects, but for some reason there are no MRs from the open-source community, and we don’t need it for our own services, you can pay us to get it done. Just to be on the same page: when we develop a project for our own needs, we implement specific features useful for our operations, but we don’t have spare resources to invest into features outside that scope. Of course, we totally understand that others use cases may be different from ours and that somebody will need a bit different set of features. We want to be fair, so we added that custom development service. If somebody finds it useful - that will be wonderful!

We got a response from the domain registry operator - they won’t do anything, until Google Safe Browsing issue is resolved. Meanwhile, we’re updating the website with notes about that outage, and contacting affected customers to give them a clear understanding of the current status.

Outage is in progress (update)

  • What: etke.host domain
  • Impact: customers using etke.host as their matrix server’s domain, etke.cc email communications
  • ETA: unknown

The etke.host domain name was put on hold by the domain registry operator due to a domain name listing in Google Safe Browsing.

We already sent requests to unlist the domain name from Google Safe Browsing and unsuspend it from the domain registry operator side because the reasons listed on the Google Safe Browsing side are false accusations and that domain name was never used for such actions from the moment it was registered by us.

Unfortunately, such requests may take a while before they will be fulfilled.

Servers Update In Progress (Security Fix)

  • Element 1.11.25 -> Element 1.11.26

The issues involve prototype pollution via events containing special strings in key locations, which can temporarily disrupt normal functioning of matrix-js-sdk and matrix-react-sdk, potentially impacting the consumer’s ability to process data safely.

Although we have only demonstrated a denial-of-service-style impact, we cannot completely rule out the possibility of a more severe impact due to the relatively extensive attack surface. We have therefore classified this as High severity and strongly recommend upgrading as a precautionary measure.
