Asustor has just released ADM 2.6.3 in response to the many security vulnerabilities that are currently affecting users.

The company’s latest release features upgraded SAMBA and OpenSSL versions and a new two-step authentication login mechanism for strengthening account security.

Also featured is the newly added Pushbullet and Pushover free push notification services that are compatible with a variety of devices, platforms and browsers.

Once configured, users will also need a phone verification code to sign in to ADM which means that even if their account password is stolen, users can still ensure full security of all accounts.

Vincent Tseng, product manager at Asustor, says network security issues have always been present and are impossible to ignore. He also mentions that the chances of having an account password stolen is much greater than many people expect.

“Asustor understands the importance of our users’ data,” says Tseng.

“With regards to data security, we have specifically provided a significant upgrade that offers better protection of our users’ digital assets than ever before.”

The company addresses security vulnerability issues with the upgraded core of ADM 2.6.3. This includes the aforementioned SAMBA 4.4 and OpenSSL 1.0.2h version upgrades.
