      WTF?

      Never attribute to malice...

      An increase in the quality of the stock photos clearly not matched by an increase in the quality of the commentary.

      Meanwhile, not a Jamf user but it's a shame when a vendor's ham-fisted attempts to keep a lid on damaging flaws and "keep it in the [customer] family" and away from the miscreants turns into a Streisand situation.

    How is it possible

    In this day and age, how can a company possibly not be aware of how to properly handle a patch. Trying to hide the issue and refusing to publish details of the flaw, really ?

    There are still companies that try to do that and think they will get away with it ?

    Sheesh.

    What? I'm a Jamf customer, we did receive the report.

    Soooo... the vulnerability was discovered, then patched almost immediately - then Jamf allowed customer about 72 hours to upgrade their server before telling the world there was a way to hack into anyones server not upgraded to a patched build. This was a responsible and appropriate move. Jamf released the vulnerability data to customers yesterday. It's common practice to allow people ample time to upgrade prior to releasing the how-to

    Err, yeah, just like that baby

    "Premium and Custom customers can contact their Customer Success representative to schedule an upgrade."

    Maybe I'm getting old and cynical, but when I see a company refer to their customer service folks as "Customer Success representatives", I know somebody's getting a gratuitous wanking under the table somewhere...

    But like I said, I'm old and cynical.

      Joke

      They can be ill-timed, sure;

      But never gratuitous.
