If you are a Linoma Software customer using any of our products such as the GoAnywhere suite (Director, Services, Gateway, Open PGP Studio), Crypto Complete, Surveyor/400 or the RPG Toolbox, we are pleased to report that our products are NOT vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.
The CVE-2014-0160 exploit, or Heartbleed bug, has made big headlines over the last 48 hours. The Heartbleed bug exploits vulnerabilities in the popular OpenSSL server software potentially allowing the memory of SSL/TLS encrypted systems to be compromised. The bug essentially allows access to the memory of the SSL/TLS protected systems and attackers can potentially steal and read formerly encrypted information such as usernames and passwords, credit card numbers and other sensitive data. To learn more about the Heartbleed bug please visit Heartbleed.com. Additional resources allow you to check and see if your website or server is affected by the Heartbleed bug: Heartbleed Test and LastPass Heartbleed Checker.
GoAnywhere Suite (Director, Services, Gateway, Open PGP Studio)
GoAnywhere does not use native libraries for SSL/TLS and relies on the JSSE libraries of the JVM that GoAnywhere is running on. This exploit does not exist in the JSSE implementation of SSL/TLS. While Tomcat does, however, have the ability to utilize native SSL/TLS capabilities for its HTTP/S connections with the APR Connectors, GoAnywhere does not employ this functionality.
GoAnywhere Secure File Transfer mobile apps:
For Apple devices: The GoAnywhere Apple app uses the Secure Transport implementation of SSL/TLS and is not affected by Heartbleed.
For Android devices: The GoAnywhere Android app uses the JSSE implementation of SSL/TLS and is not affected by Heartbleed.
Surveyor/400 does not use native libraries for SSL/TLS and relies on the JSSE libraries of the JVM that Surveyor/400 is running on. This exploit does not exist in the JSSE implementation of SSL/TLS.
Crypto Complete does not use SSL/TLS for Field or Backup encryption and is not affected by Heartbleed.
RPG Toolbox: Our RPG toolbox does not use any encryption and is not affected by Heartbleed.
At Linoma Software we understand the importance and challenges of HIPAA compliance. Whether your organization has been compliant with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule for months or it’s still shoring up some compliance gaps, there are likely tips you’ve picked up along the way.
Our partnership with HealthIT Security allows us to bring timely and actionable information to healthcare IT professionals and executives. This HIPAA Best Practices Guide uses expert analysis and industry expertise to focus on exactly what will be expected technically, administratively and policy-wise among HIPAA covered entities and business associates (BAs) during potential audit scenarios.
With the estimated cost of compliance falling around $14.5 million annually, regulated healthcare businesses can’t afford HIPAA non-compliance with PHI.

If you’re an RPG programmer, you probably already know that the IBM i V7R1 Technology Refresh now supports free form syntax for H, F, D and P specs, as well as C specs.
Now that you’re no longer restricted to those traditional columns, you may be considering updating your code.
Fortunately, Linoma Software has just released version 5.0 of RPG Toolbox™ to help you do just that — modernize your RPG source code automatically using the new RDi plugin.
RPG Toolbox has been a popular tool for developers ever since the first release of free form RPG in V5R1. Millions of lines of legacy RPG source code have been successfully converted by Linoma Software customers using this software.
Now that we’ve added the RDi plugin, programmers can convert entire members or just selected blocks of source code. They can also indent their nested free form logic to make the code easier to read and maintain.
If you’d like to see RPG Toolbox in action, watch this webinar on demand where we’ll be demonstrating how easily RPG Toolbox converts traditional source code into totally free form syntax. Users can modernize their RPG code using the RDi plugin or use commands to convert from PDM or SEU.
To learn more about the RPG Toolbox release, you can read the official announcement or visit the product page.
Free 30-day trials are available at the Linoma Software website, or you can purchase the software online.
