On September 9, Dawid Golunski reported CVE-2016-6662, a major vulnerability in MySQL which also affects PerconaDB and MariaDB. This is what’s known as a SQL injection attack, and attackers can use it to take over your server completely. It works by tricking MySQL into giving an attacker control over the system (“root privileges”) by loading malicious configuration files. Percona has a post describing the attack in more detail.
Am I at risk?
All JetRails customers at eBoundHost are already protected. Others using older versions of MySQL, Maria or PerconaDB may be at risk. Platforms that rely on these databases include Magento, WordPress, Drupal, OpenCart, Prestashop – any LAMP-based application may be vulnerable – if you aren’t sure, check in with your developer.
MySQL has fixed this problem in versions 5.5.52, 5.6.33 and 5.7.15. Percona and Maria have also released updates with fixes for the vulnerability. Aside from upgrading, you can patch mysqld_safe, or change the permissions on configuration files to eliminate this vulnerability.
If you have any questions about your site’s safety or how to make your environment secure, get in touch.

Cost, technical support and promptness of return calls are of paramount importance to me since most of my work is done on the road and waiting for a reply is frustrating. eBoundHost has been a pleasure to work with friendly, courteous and professional.
I'm Stan Bogdashin, a customer of your hosting company for the past 2 years. Our company provides web design, development and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services. Want to thank you for helping us by providing great hosting seamless support - this is why I continue to recommend you and don't use anyone else for hosting!
From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!
eBoundHost.com has the best customer service in ANY industry. Their support staff answers phone calls and emails immediately and they have time and time again gone over and above their responsibilities to make sure I am taken care of and that my clients are happy. I have many websites hosted here from small business to corporate level and have dealt with many hosting companies in the industry and eBoundHost.com is by far the BEST hosting provider there is. Great prices, great service, great hosting packages, and a killer reseller program! THANK YOU AGAIN :)
EXCELLENT across the board, super quick reply to questions (about 15-30min). Outstanding! Loads of features, excellent price! Loads of space and bandwidth!
SUPER SUPPORT - even during "off hours" - Sundays & holidays. Responses have always been within minutes of the initial call or email. The BEST vendor I have ever used in my 10 plus years as a webhosting services consumer.
I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
