In order to increase the security of the application, Checkbox will be releasing security updates throughout the lifespan of 2016 Q4. You can find changes that are issued in these minor updates below.
How to apply the updates:
Versions prior to 2016 Q4
If you have not already updated to 2016 Q4 then you need to take no additional action other than to follow the patch guide to 2016 Q4.
Currently on 2016 Q4
If you have already updated to 2016 Q4 prior to the date of the update’s release then you can apply the update by overwriting all files in your installation except the web.config file and the config folder. Unlike patches, these security updates can be applied without disabling HTTPs.
The security updates are built into 2016 Q4. To download them you can log into the customer support area, and re-download 2016 Q4 on the right-hand side.
If you are using the SDK / Developer edition please contact support for assistance in applying security updates.
If you have any questions about this please contact our support team. These security updates will also contain any minor bug fixes that can be included without the need for a full patch.
