The Time Billing Disaster…You’ve Been Compromised!

June 1, 2012 — Leave a comment

I recently learned that resellers can access each others invoices online if they use a certain time billing system…it’s a security hole in the system that allows this.  That means that, if you use this software, your competition can see every invoice you have – at least as of yesterday (this may be fixed by now).  I came across this while working with some resellers who have been making inroads into the security space for SMB.  After discovering this, they are suddenly aware of just how big security is.  It’s one thing to work with clients on the subjective issue of being security – you have a virus, or you need encryption.  It’s a much bigger thing to realize your own digital assets are suddenly open to the entire world.

Security is real…suddenly the reseller technical people are seeing just how real a security issue can be.  Don’t miss this opportunity to understand what the president of a company looks like when he finds out his most important application is open to the world!  On the other hand, make sure you have the patch (as soon as it’s available).  If you don’t know what I am talking about you might want to contact me…
