1 Software Release Notes Introduction

This document provides release notes for legacy LoadMaster firmware versions.

To see release notes for newer firmware versions, go to the Release Notes or LoadMaster Documentation Archive section of the KEMP Documentation Page.

We recommend you fully back up the LoadMaster configuration before upgrading the software. Instructions for backing up the LoadMaster are described in within the documentation which can be found at https://kemptechnologies.com/documentation.

Installation of this software and reloading of the configuration may take up to five minutes, or possibly more, during which time the LoadMaster being upgraded is unavailable to carry traffic.

1.1 Pre-requisites

The following are recommendations for upgrading the software:

The person undertaking the upgrade should be a network administrator or someone with equivalent knowledge.

In case of issues restoring backup configurations, configuring LoadMaster or other maintenance issues, please refer to the LoadMaster documentation which can be found at https://kemptechnologies.com/documentation.

1.2 Support

If there are problems loading the software release, please contact KEMP support staff and a KEMP support Engineer will get in touch with you promptly: https://kemptechnologies.com/support

3 Release 7.1.35.5

Refer to the sections below for details about firmware version 7.1.35.5. This was released on 22nd March 2018.

3.1 7.1.35.5 - New Features

The following feature was added to the 7.1.35.5 release:

  • Updated the Copyright Notices on the LoadMaster console and Web User Interface (WUI).

3.3 7.1.35.5 - Issues Resolved

PD-11023 Previously, a critical vulnerability (CVE-2018-9091) in the LoadMaster Operating System (LMOS) related to Session Management could allow an unauthorized, remote attacker to bypass security protections, gain system privileges, and execute elevated commands such as ls, ps, cat, and so on, thereby compromising the system. Through this remote execution, in certain cases, exposure of sensitive system data such as certificates, private keys, and other information may be possible.
Now, this vulnerability has been mitigated against with more stringent security checks. Further information can be found here: Mitigation For Remote Access Execution Vulnerability.

PD-11023

A critical vulnerability (CVE-2018-9091) in the LoadMaster Operating System (LMOS) related to Session Management could allow an unauthorized, remote attacker to bypass security protections, gain system privileges, and execute elevated commands such as ls, ps, cat, and so on, thereby compromising the system. Through this remote execution, in certain cases, exposure of sensitive system data such as certificates, private keys, and other information may be possible.

Further information can be found here: Mitigation For Remote Access Execution Vulnerability.

PD-8725 Proximity and Location Based scheduling do not work with IPv6 source addresses.
PD-9950 LoadMaster VNF HA does not work on LoadMaster versions 7.1.35.n and 7.2.36.n. It does work om LoadMaster version 7.2.37 and above.
PD-10159 CPU and network usage graphs not appearing after firmware upgrade. Resetting the statistic counters does not clear the graph data.

There is an issue which is continually locking out some LoadMaster users when using HA and session management. This is because the list of blocked logins is shared between HA machines. When a user is unblocked, the “blocked login” file is not removed from both machines – so the files come back from the slave unit. As a workaround – unblock the user on both machines at the same time.

41.4 Known Issues

  • A critical vulnerability (CVE-2018-9091) in the LoadMaster Operating System (LMOS) related to Session Management could allow an unauthorized, remote attacker to bypass security protections, gain system privileges, and execute elevated commands such as ls, ps, cat, and so on, thereby compromising the system. Through this remote execution, in certain cases, exposure of sensitive system data such as certificates, private keys, and other information may be possible.

    Further information can be found here: Mitigation For Remote Access Execution Vulnerability.

  • Quick setup Help appears automatically if no IP address is configured on the LM if a VLAN is configured on eth0 and no IP address is assigned to the underlying interface (eth0)

Thank you for your comments regarding our Release Notes. We will be implementing this suggestion going forward and, from the 7.1.35 version documentation, the release dates will be included in the document.

Hello, link "LoadMaster Release Notes for Version 6" broken. I need this to search for a bug.

Hello,

for PD-9089, I had the problem with 7.1.35.4->7.2.40.0.

The real path is System Configuration > System Log Files > Debug Options button > Reset Statistics button

There is no "Extended Log Files" for this workaround ( as Extended Log files is at the same level as System log files).

Hello

Thank you for your correction regarding our Release Notes. I will have our document team correct that.

If you are still having issues with upgrading, please open up a support ticket and an enginer can assist you.

Would it be possible to include the versions you can upgrade from in the release notes. For example, I have 7.2.38.0, but it is not clear if I can upgrade directly to 7.2.41.1 or not, although it seems likely.

Will 7.2.41.1 be available for the LM-2200?

7.2.41.2 (released today) is not compatible with the LM-2200. LM-2200 can run LTS FW (current is 7.1.35.5)
