December 2014/January 2015 - Version 14.4.13/15.1.13

  • New: Free-to-Use Push Notifications
    With this update, we introduce a great new notification option: You can now send push notifications to your Android or iOS devices—for free, included in every PRTG version, even in the PRTG Freeware! This is a very comfortable way to get alerts from PRTG. All you need is PRTG for Android or PRTG for iOS and you can set up your free push notifications within seconds. Please see the Knowledge Base article How can I send push notifications with PRTG? for details.

October/November 2014 - Version 14.4.12

This is the most secure PRTG ever built, including a fix for the POODLE problem. But this tightened security has side effects. Most notably all your Enterprise Consoles on client machines will need to be updated manually. Also some SSL based sensors and notifications may be affected. See the following knowledge base article for details: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61769

Note: The PRTG configuration file created by this version is not downwards compatible with previous versions of PRTG. This means, you cannot switch easily between this version and a version number starting with 14.3.11. As soon as you run PRTG version 14.3.12 or later, you can only downgrade to an earlier version of PRTG if you recover the latest configuration file before the update. For more information about recovering a previous configuration file, please see https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/12313

Note: Important change to the SNMP HP ProLiant System Health sensor! This sensor now uses a more sophisticated method to determine the "Overall Status" channel. The OID we used in the previous version did not work anymore in our labs after updating to the latest software version from HP. The sensor now uses the proper OID and displays the same status as the HP software does. The overall status is not something that PRTG is making up, but it is directly read and displayed from the target system. This can lead to more possible error cases. For details, see this article: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61805

  • Improved [Security]: 
    • Fix for POODLE: We have already implemented a fix for this SSLv3 security vulnerability and disabled the outdated SSL 3.0 encryption for PRTG. See this article for details.
    • We have massively upgraded the encryption security of PRTG’s webserver to make the usage of PRTG even more secure.
    • We have upgraded the OpenSSL libraries to version 1.0.1h (these are used for SSL connections of the web server, the core/probe and probe/probe connections as well as for most sensor types that offer SSL).
    • We have locked down the accepted ciphers for SSL connections to the most secure ones that will allow for “Perfect Forward Secrecy” and TLS 1.2, ensuring that a session key derived from a set of long-term keys cannot be compromised if one of the long-term keys is compromised in the future. Even if somebody wire taps your communication with your PRTG server and gets access to your private keys later, he will not be able to decrypt the old data. 
      Note: Older browsers and older versions of the Enterprise Console may not be able to connect to the PRTG webserver any more. There is an option in the PRTG webserver settings that allows to (temporarily) switch to a compatibility mode with weakened security, so these clients can connect again. Please update your browsers and the Enterprise Console to the latest version. See the following knowledge base article for details: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61769
    • The admin can set a time after which the WebUI automatically performs a logout to prevent unauthorized access (under System Administration | User Interface).
    • When sending a "support bundle" with a configuration file to Paessler support, passwords are not included anymore. We are now removing all encrypted passwords from the config.dat file before it is sent to Paessler support in support bundles when the user chooses this function. 
  • Extended [Freeware]: We are making the Freeware of PRTG 3 times more valuable! The freeware edition can now monitor up to 30 sensors for free (instead of only 10 sensors)!
  • New [Sensors]:
    • SSL Security Check BETA Sensor checks a target for the allowed SSL protocols and shows a security rating
    • There are 4 new sensor types for SQL server monitoring: The sensors Microsoft SQL v2, MySQL v2, Oracle v2, and PostgreSQL monitor SQL databases directly using .NET 4.0 and are much more flexible than the previous SQL sensors.
    • The new SSH SAN Enclosure sensor monitors the health of an enclosure on an SAN that supports CLI over SSH.
    • You can now specify after how many failed sensor scans a sensor status will be set to a ‘down’ status if a device reports an error. Define this in the "Scanning Interval" setting.
    • Newly created Ping sensors now send multiple ping requests with 5 pings by default. All requests have to fail to set the sensor in a "down" status. Existing Ping sensors keep their current setting. This will minimize false alarms due to packet loss.
    • The new open source tool QoS Reflector enables you to use a QoS (Quality of Service) Round Trip sensor without installing a remote probe at the 'end' of the connection. The QoS Reflector is a Python script so that you can use any Linux machine as QoS roundtrip endpoint. See our Knowledge Base for details: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61176
  • New [WebGUI]: 
    • Google Universal Analytics integration: You can track the usage of the WebUI of PRTG in your Google Universal Analytics account. Simply create a Google Analytics Tracking ID in the analytics portal and enter it into PRTG’s system administration settings and PRTG will dynamically integrate it into the website. See our Knowledge Base for details: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/61406
    • New [WebGUI]: There is a new visual representation for sensors using lookups with bitfields
