The HTTPoxy Vulnerability has been taken care of by LiteSpeed, automatically!

Monday, July 18th, 2016


Today, HTTPoxy was discovered in the wild. This vulnerability affects some server-side web applications that run in CGI or CGI-like environments, such as some FastCGI configurations. So far, the PHP, Python, and Go languages are known to be affected by this.

The vulnerability is caused by conflicting namespaces. A CGI or FastCGI-like interface sets environment variables based on HTTP request parameters. These can override internal variables that are used to configure the application. Further explanation of this bug can be found on the httpoxy web page.


LiteMage Configuration Tricks:
How To Keep Your Cache Warm Indefinitely

Keep Your LiteSpeed Public Cache Warm

LiteMage has many settings which can be fine-tuned to increase store performance. Today, let’s discuss a trick that nearly all stores can benefit from: keeping your public cache warm.

What is a warm cache?

A warm cache already contains your data, in this case objects and pages. When these are freshly stored in your cache, they can be served by LiteSpeed Web Server directly. This prevents PHP from being invoked and hitting the Magento backend, meaning your users can access these objects and pages faster. Thus, it would be ideal to keep your cache warm as long as possible. LiteMage can keep your cache warm indefinitely.

But how?
