XI: Security Changes

XI: Security Changes

Three security checks have been removed from IntraWeb XI. In principle, they are useful. However too many poorly written “Internet Security” packages alter headers incorrectly and cause these exceptions to be thrown. Because of this, we are removing them from IntraWeb XI.

In fact because of such issues, these features were turned off by default several versions ago. Now they are being removed completely. Users wishing to preserve these higher levels of security can implement them with a few lines of user code with session events.

The security checks that have been removed are:

  • Security Exception: The IP you are using is different than the one that is assigned to the specified session.
  • Security Exception: The browser you are using is different than the one that is assigned to the specified session.
  • Security Exception: The IP you are using is from a different subnet than the one that is assigned to the specified session.
