New Release December 2006

I have just released new program major release. ShixxNOTE (Released December 2006) Build 125. This new version is now available on program homepage site under Download section.

  • Critical security bug is now fixed. Parsing network message is improved and now possible attacker can not cause buffer overflow. This bug was discovered by Luigi Auremma.
  • Important bug fixed. All received notes will be visible after computer or program restart. Problem with disappearance of received notes is now fixed. In previous version, received notes sometimes were lost after program restart. Now in this new release you will always see all your received notes and no more lost notes.

Luigi Auremma discoverer of security bug was informed and he changed his ShixxNOTE program change log file with new update that bug is fixed and that new release is now available on his site. Check now ShixxNOTE program info on his official security site.

UPDATE 27 Dec 2006: The author has released a patched version (build 125)

Also I have to inform you that ShixxNOTE is ready for Windows Vista, check program homepage under section What’s New or Awards to see more.

    Version released in December 2006 finally has “ShixxNOTE font buffer overflow” security bug fixed. I tried and it works, When an attacker tries to exploit security bug, this new program version Build 125 automatically shows warning message box. Program knows that it is under attack and automatically closes.
    If you have version released before December 2006, or before build 125 then you must download newer version which has this security bug fixed.
