How to upload Documents to Sugar
Recently we undertook a project to upload documents from a network file share to SugarCRM’s software and during this project it occurred to us that we could help others to upload or download documents from Sugar.
A new security vulnerability called VENOM surfaced last week and cloud service providers such as ourselves have been working hard to address the issue.
VENOM, which stands for Visualized Environment Neglected Operations Manipulation (Quite a mouthful!) lies at the heart of any virtual server environment infrastructure. It starts from virtual machines, several of which can run on each physical server, and can allow access elsewhere on a server and potentially elsewhere in a given data center.
Here is a description of this issue from Jason Geffner, a researcher who discovered the bug:
This vulnerability may allow an attacker to escape from the confines of an affected virtual machine (VM) guest and potentially obtain code-execution access to the host. Absent mitigation, this VM escape could open access to the host system and all other VMs running on that host, potentially giving adversaries significant elevated access to the host’s local network and adjacent systems.
Rest assured that we have been working closely with our hosting provider and all our servers have been protected against the security vulnerability.
As part of the on-going support and service to our customers, FibreCRM continually monitors the security and performance of its systems.
Last week we renewed the SSL certificate for our domain fibrecrm.net where the hosted system environments reside, this certificate is one of the best on the market and supplied by Globalsign.
Our servers are running the latest supported versions of SSL/TLS and any outdated/unsupported versions are disabled to help defend against potential security threats. You may have heard of the Heartbleed Bug or POODLE both of which affect the usage of outdated versions of SSL and were addressed within hours of the threat being made public.

Ok so some keywords and phrases can be expensive especially when there is strong competition and a lot of potential bidders for air time.
