Vulnerability Information

Ava Aware used TLS 1.0 in connections to LDAP servers where TLS 1.0 was the default protocol.

We recommend enabling TLS 1.2 on your LDAP server. Additionally, if your Ava Aware installation cannot be immediately upgraded to an unaffected version, we recommend setting TLS 1.2 as the default protocol on your LDAP server.

Ava Aware now only supports TLS 1.2-encrypted connections to LDAP servers.
