"Poodle" vulnerability fixed

When Google researchers published their "Poodle" vulnerability report on October 14th, took immediate action by fixing this security issue on OTM servers. OpenSSL has been upgraded to version 1.0.1j and the OTM webservers now deny connections via the deprecated SSLv3 protocol. As a consequence, Windows XP users surfing with the ancient Internet Explorer 6 are no longer able to connect to OTM resource and client interfaces.

Browser war finally ended

For the benefit of our users we finally decided to pull Microsoft Internet Explorer® from the race. With the February OTM update, it will be no longer possible to login to OTM project manager's and administrator's modules with any IE version (see also post Oct. 2009).  
Note: OTM service websites for resources and customers are NOT affected by this decision.

The decision was made because MS IE is not conform to W3C's HTML and CSS standards. This causes tremendous extra time in programming, often resulting in unpleasant compromises.

We recommend to install a W3C-conform, even securer and much faster browser like Mozilla Firefox (Version 3 +), Apple Safari (Version 4 +) or Google Chrome (Version 5 +).

Of course, we´ll check MS IE9 in 2011 for compatibility issues :-)

Browser war still going on

In spite of the release of Internet Explorer 8, this graphic unfortunately still sums up the current situation ...
We strongly recommend using Firefox or Safari, for operating OTM.
