    Image searching feature

    stSoftware uses the Lucene API to provide the document indexing for searching. The functionality of the Lucene core API is extended with the Lucene Image Retrieval (LIRE) API. When an image file is uploaded/changed in the cloud file manager automatic LIRE indexing on the image is performed and stored as a searchable attribute of the image file.

    The system allows for searches of images with exact or similar image content based on the LIRE index. All documents (including images) have a SHA1 checksum

    Important notice about the Heartbleed bug for stSoftware customers

    Overview

    The Heartbleed Bug is a recently discovered vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic software library used by many of the world’s web servers to secure information using TLS. If the web site is vulnerable then a hacker could expose 64k of the server's memory without any trace in the server's logs. The server's memory exposed could include the server's private encryption key or other information such as usernames and passwords.
