Zoho and the Heartbleed Vulnerability

Posted by Posted on by
3

Quick note:
All Zoho servers are patched, and your data is safe.

The details:
Soon after the information about this vulnerability became known, we started patching all our servers using the newer, protected versions of OpenSSL. This operation was completed in a few hours after the news broke out. We renewed our SSL certificates too. So, we are no longer vulnerable.

As of now, we have no indication that the vulnerability has been exploited against any of the Zoho applications. However, we would like you to follow these safeguards.

1. Change your Zoho account passwords immediately.
2. To be doubly safe, enable Two Factor Authentication (TFA) for your accounts.

We will update this post, as and when we have more new info about the vulnerability.

Interesting Public Dashboard Examples

Time and again, we come across Zoho Reports being used to analyze varied data sets. Below is a sampling of some of the recent public databases that we found interesting.

1. ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station)
I never knew that ISS was this connected with Hams, before I came across this ARISS database! Some interesting stats there, about events and contacts made by various schools with ISS, across countries.

2. Austin Real Estate
ABoR (Austin Board of Realtors) has a dashboard each for Travis County and Williamson County detailing avg list prices, foreclosure list price per zip code and types of financial transaction that were carried out.

3. IT Help Desk Stats
This is probably done by a system administrator for her IT team – a dashboard for data upload/download and computers being synced, and another dashboard that analyzes the number of support tickets raised.

4. Small Business Centre, North West Metro
Dashboard that reports the results of a survey done over small businesses in Western Australia.

5. Ministry of Transport & Communication, Mexico
From what little I could decipher using Google Translate, each of the dashboards in this database give out the number of landslides, free passageways and damaged bridges, state-wise.

6. Traffic Accidents
This dashboard analyzes accident numbers – how many injured vs dead, males vs female motorcyclists involved in accidents, number of accidents in different age groups etc.

7. Australian Football Clubs
dashboard made over Aussie football clubs data, and analysis of their profits.

Now, how are you using Zoho Reports? Let us know in the comments.

Zoho Reports has added a lot of cool features recently. Let’s see some of the major features that have come in.

Scheduled Emailing of Reports with Filter Criteria 
You’ve created a set of monthly sales reports. Only that you’d want to filter the region, so as the regional heads see the sales data of their own regions alone. We’ve seen how this can be done in Zoho Reports, without duplicating the same set of reports for each regional head. Now, let’s say you want the same reports to be mailed periodically to the intended recipients. This is possible now. All you’ve to do is,

  • Open one of the reports to be mailed
  • Click ‘Export’ -> ‘Email Multiple Views’ -> ‘As PDF’ Read more
