NetCloak 3.1.1 Update Addresses Potential Security Hole

Crystal Lake, IL, January 2, 2001 — Maxum Development Corporation today
announced that a potential security hole has been discovered in the
recently released NetCloak 3.1. The problem, while serious, was discovered
by Maxum and has not resulted in any known real world break-ins. Still, the
company is strongly urging all NetCloak 3.1 users to install the free
update immediately.

Specific details about the problem are not public and will not be released
to protect sites that have not yet performed the upgrade. However, the
error may allow unauthorized users access to protected content when
NetCloak’s new user registration feature is used. The problem is strictly
limited to pages protected using this new feature in NetCloak 3.1, and so
does not effect users of NetCloak 3.0 or earlier.

The update, which is free for all users of NetCloak 3.1, is available by
clicking “Download” on the NetCloak home page:
