Released: XenMobile 9.0.4 for MDX Toolkit and SDK


The Citrix XenMobile team has send out the following announcement regarding the new XenMobile Update:

A security bulletin was issued on October 29th for XenMobile, specifically for the MDX Toolkit and SDK. This fix is specific to iOS 8.

 

What is this release all about?

iOS 8 introduced a change in how the operating system manages data caching for apps. The MDX Toolkit 9.0.4 fix disables data caching on the disk for MDX wrapped apps avoiding the potential for data leakage. The Worx App Suite (WorxMail, WorxWeb, WorxNotes, ShareFile, WorxEdit) requires re-wrapping.

 

Impact for app developers!

If you are developing your own applications or obtain from a 3rd party, ensure that the iOS application is using NSURLCache as a caching mechanism in the context of URL loading system (NSURLConnection), additionally your application requires the new Worx App SDK and MDX Toolkit to address this vulnerability.

The change in the SDK and MDX Toolkit disables disk caching using the NSURLCache mechanism.

 

This updated version of the Toolkit and SDK can be downloaded here

E2EVC Barcelona: The ShareFile session


Presentations

Over a year ago the E2EVC events (or PubForum as it was called before) were enthusiastically promoted to me by one of the grandfathers Ton de Vreede. He did such a good job promoting the upcoming Copenhagen event that I decided to check my schedule and book that ticket and hotel right away. Eager to experience that community feeling of sharing knowledge (AND DRINKS!!!) with kindred spirits, community leaders and a lot of nerdie and geekie (as my girlfriend affectionately refers to me) friends.

At Copenhagen I was instantly adopted into the E2EVC family and was affected with the same virus that makes us so excited about our work and the great technologies that we get to play with every day.

You probably already guessed it! The tickets for the next events were booked within 10 minutes after Alex Juschin announced tickets were available on the E2EVC events and new presentations were prepared for each attended event.
