EtherFAX and Lexmark

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We recently tested the new EtherFAX integration on a Lexmark MFP and the results were outstanding! The EtherFAX integration allows the Lexmark MFP to send and receive faxes without the need for a traditional analog fax line. How much could your organization save by eliminating analog fax lines? The monthly savings could be huge!

The setup and configuration of the Lexmark MFP was very simple and only took about 10 minutes from start to finish. Lexmark even offers a smartphone app to assist in the setup. Even a child could do it! The etherFAX integration allows the Lexmark MFP to send and receive faxes to any fax device. Fax numbers are available for just about any location or you can port an existing number to the Lexmark MFP.

If you are sending and receiving to and from a Lexmark MFP that are both on the etherFAX network, the fax documents transmit at internet speeds, are fully encrypted from end to end -at high resolution. We were able to send a 50 page fax document, which took about 1 second to transmit.

EtherFAX can be added to just about any Lexmark MFP or printer. Feel free to contact us to learn more about the integration or to sign up for Lexmark fax services, powered by etherFAX.

Any Lexmark MFP can be fax enabled with etherFAX, without the need for a traditional analog fax line.

The Fax Eploit

Fax Exploit Discovered on HP Fax Machines – Faxploit

HP fax machines were discovered to have a dangerous weakness, we call this the Faxploit or Fax Exploit. The fax exploit discovered on HP fax machines is specific to HP fax devices only. A well known security research group did successfully compromised an HP Multi-Function fax machine by taking it apart and reverse engineering certain HP specific code. While their research was undoubtedly eye-opening, similar headlines and statements claiming that the “T.30 protocol itself has been compromised” are categorically false; a bit of drama designed to make headlines. 

More specifically, the researches were able to demonstrate the Faxploit by exposing a flaw in software developed internally at HP, rendering it vulnerable when handling color/JPEG faxes. If you own HP equipment in your organization, please be sure to apply security patches available from HP immediately. 

This type of attack is a reminder that much of today’s office equipment attached to our networks are computing devices, capable of causing potential harm and disruption to your business if not managed properly. Whether it’s a networked thermostat, printer device or music player in our home, both businesses and individual users of such products should always be mindful of security issues and updates whenever possible. 

As for etherFAX, rest assured that your connected systems are completely safe within the etherFAX Network. The etherFAX network and systems are not vulnerable to such an attack of this nature and further isolates our customers from such nefarious activity. It’s just one more reason why using etherFAX is a wise choice. 

Dialogic has made an official statement about this misleading research as well. You can read their response here:

etherFAX Ends Support for TLS 1.0

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

etherFAX will no longer be supporting TLS version 1.0 for secure communications after June 30th, 2018. In order to align with security industry best practices and changing regulatory requirements, this change will be made for all of etherFAX’s Internet facing web sites and systems.

What is TLS 1.0?
TLS stands for “Transport Layer Security.” It is a protocol that provides privacy and data integrity between two communicating applications. It is the most widely deployed security protocol used today and is used for web browsers, FTP clients, and other applications that require data to be securely exchanged over a network. TLS ensures that a connection to a remote endpoint is the intended endpoint through encryption and endpoint identity verification. The versions of TLS, to date, are TLS 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2.
Client web browsers, FTP clients, and connection applications may use TLS as a component of their security.
etherFAX highly recommends the use of TLS 1.2 for all communications.

What is the change?
All etherFAX API’s are requiring action to disable TLS 1.0 by June 30, 2018. On that date etherFAX will disable support for the TLS 1.0 encryption protocol, which will prevent customers from using it to access etherFAX services. This change is important to protect the security of our customer’s data while they interact with our systems.

How will customers be impacted?
After etherFAX disables TLS 1.0, any connections to/from etherFAX that rely on TLS 1.0 will fail. This may impact a number of etherFAX services including all REST and SOAP API interfaces, fax server connections, customer portals, and partner portals. After this change the minimum supported Microsoft OS is Windows Server 2008 R2. Server 2003 will cease to function. etherFAX A2E devices are not affected by this change.

How can customers avoid a service disruption?
The action required by your organization will depend on the method by which the etherFAX services are accessed and from what OS version they are being accessed from. Ingenium Customers utilizing a fax server application or etherFAX API integration should contact us for more details on any required changes or updates.

etherFAX has made available a test tool which can validate your Windows server(s) for their ability to connect over the various TLS protocols. This tool can only tell you whether your system is capable of properly making connections post-TLS-1.0, using .NET applications. If your faxing application is hardcoded to use legacy protocols, not based on .NET 4.0 or higher, OR based on .NET but not utilizing .NET’s connection methods, we cannot determine whether it will connect to etherFAX endpoints after June 30th, and this should be discussed with the developer or software vendor for further information.

RightFax® has made certain changes to RightFax® Support Renewals that you must be made aware of. These policies are effective immediately. Here is what you NEED TO KNOW:

Decommission Policy: If there are any supported components of your current RightFax® environment (modules, channels, hardware, etc.) that you NO LONGER plan to use and/or support, you must ‘decommission’ those products at least 90 days before your contract expiration date. If these products are not decommissioned at least 90 days prior to your contract expiring, you will be charged for another full year of support on these products. Please contact Ingenium as soon as you wish to decommission products so we can help you.

Late Fees: It is critical that you renew your support contract on time. RightFax® imposes a 3% late-penalty (of the total cost of your renewal) that begins the day after a Support Contract expires, and an additional 3% every 30 days a contract remains expired. Please renew your contract with before it expires to avoid these costly penalties!

You can avoid costly penalties by taking a few proactive steps now. You can count on Ingenium to help you renew your support agreement prior to the expiration date.
