Release Notes Version 5.3.0.002
Last updated on
Before installing any firmware version, back up your configuration and read all release notes that apply to versions more recent than the one currently running on your system.
Do not manually reboot your system at any time during an update unless otherwise instructed by Barracuda Technical Support. Depending on your current firmware version and other system factors, updating can take up to 10 minutes. If the process takes longer, contact Barracuda Technical Support for further assistance.
By default, SSL 3.0 is enabled due to the wide use of the protocol. Since SSL 3.0 is vulnerable to the POODLE (CVE-2014-3566) attack, Barracuda recommends that you disable SSL 3.0 for all SSL services configured on the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC.
Barracuda also recommends that you use the server IP address when configuring a server, as a server configured with the hostname might not resolve to the proper server IP address in some cases.
SSL hardware support is now available.
Certificates with an expiration date after 2037 had issues when being uploaded to the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC. [BNADC-3026]
Logs counted on the BASIC > Status page consumed greater than expected CPU time, resulting in the system hanging or crashing. [BNADC-3061]

It is now possible to change an HTTP/HTTPS service to an INSTANT SSL service with content rules configured in it. [BNADC-3795]
The server monitoring process now retains the previous state of servers (Up or Down) if it is unable to perform the test. [BNADC-4269]
Services are now created with the enabled status only. [BNADC-4480]
The Cookie Path and Client IP Header fields no longer display example values and X-Forwarded-For respectively, since these values could be confused with the default values. These fields are now kept blank. [BNADC-5270]

An issue that prevented the deletion of a renamed service is now fixed. [BNADC-5683]
An issue with the cookie update interval is now fixed. [BNADC-5691]
The Active-Active issue for High Availability is fixed. [BNADC-5702]
A faulty internal process no longer causes the system to use 99% of the CPU. [BNADC-5723]
