BASIS International Ltd. releases version 18.0 of PRO/5®, PRO/5 Data Server®, and Visual PRO/5®. This release includes a critical security update for Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance. BASIS strongly encourages their PRO/5, PRO/5 Data Server and Visual PRO/5 communities to upgrade to revision 18.0 as soon as possible.  

Upgrade and install version 18.0 today! For additional details, read on and refer to the PRO/5 readme, relnotes (and fixes) files, PRO/5 Data Server readme, relnotes (and fixes)   files, and the Visual PRO/5 readme, relnotes (and fixes)  files.

A potential vulnerability involving SSLv3, TLS1.0 and TLS1.1 protocols and the triple DES cipher have been disabled and are no longer available when using SSL. This change is required to be both Sarbanes-Oxley compliant and to meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) required for the acceptance, processing, and transmitting of cardholder data.

Additionally, the SAVEP format has been updated for improved security. HERE are details about the SAVEP verb. The new SAVEP format is not backward compatible with older versions of PRO/5. Older SAVEP algorithms are selectable via the !SAVEPVER STBL global variable.
