Bug Fixes and other Changes

  • Fixes a bug preventing upgrade from succeeding if Threat Assessment was not installed
  • Resolves an issue accessing the QA License App on mixed-case hostnames ("CloudShark.local" vs "cloudshark.local")
  • Fixes inconsistent expiration dates between different pages and messages within the application
  • Resolves an issue where negative days were shown until license expiration
  • Updates contact information across the application for technical support to support@qacafe.com
  • Decreases the installer's verbosity and improves logging
  • Fixes an infinite loop and high CPU usage when trying to start without a license present
  • Adds the --no-epel flag to disable the installation of the epel-release repository
  • Enables cron jobs to run with the correct environment variables
  • Cron jobs are correctly run as the "cloudshark" user
  • Cleans up old cron entries from previous versions of CloudShark
  • Tidies up external firewall rules for QALA. (opens 5050, closes 5053)
  • Fixes bug where External Authentication would always show as "enabled" in the system info page, even if it was not included in the license

 

Caveats

  • CloudShark 3.9.3 is only supported on CentOS 7 systems.
  • The installer requires access to the online CentOS software (yum) repositories and EPEL (or equivalent)
    An offline "air-gapped" installation is not available. The Docker installation is entirely self-contained if that is an option.
  • The provided GeoIP database is out of date. This will be updated in the next release.
