If you manage a website, you know how important it is to have a web application firewall (WAF) in place. WAFs protect your site from attacks and can be configured to block certain types of traffic. However, they can also cause problems if they're not configured properly.
One common issue is that WAFs can block legitimate traffic if they're not configured to allow SSL SNI (Server Name Indication).
A new SSL/TLS SNI patch for Stackpath's web application firewall (WAF) has been released. This patch addresses a critical vulnerability in how Stackpath's WAF handles SSL/TLS traffic.
The vulnerability, which researchers at Google discovered, could allow an attacker to bypass the WAF and access the underlying web server. The patch is available now and should be applied as soon as possible.
Stackpath's WAF is a critical part of its security infrastructure and this patch ensures that it will continue to protect its customers' websites and data.
In conclusion, the patch that Stackpath released for their Web Application Firewall (WAF) is an effective way to secure the Server Name Indication (SNI) protocol. This patch provides an extra layer of security, as well as better performance and compatibility with other platforms. It is a great solution for any business or individual who values online security. By implementing this patch, users can be sure that their data is being transmitted securely and safely.
