    Many of you will be receiving an email informing customers of ours that RollBack Rx Professional and Drive Vaccine were successfully hacked by an attendee at Microsoft Ignite in May, and that the software has since been updated to fix it.

    I think many of you know that we at Horizon Data Sys don’t like to be stagnant. We like to listen to what people have to say, and whether it’s on our forums, our ticketing system, or trade shows; we’re always looking for new ways to adapt to the shifting market.

    The exploit discovered at Microsoft Ignite effectively removed the software from the machine, therefore taking away the protection that should be there.

    The vulnerability in question is affecting all versions including and up to RollBack Rx Professional 10.3 (build # 2700298253) and Drive Vaccine 10.4 (build # 2700331023. The development team has patched this vulnerability. For security reasons we will not be explaining the method of attack a malicious user may deploy on our software which, if exploited, would remove the program and with it the protection it offers.

    We here at Horizon DataSys highly recommend updating to RollBack Rx Professional (build # 2700482570) and Drive Vaccine (build # 2700482570) users to our new build to have the most secure version.

    If you have Annual Maintenance and/or are currently using version 10.0 and above you qualify for a free upgrade. If not, you may inquire on how to upgrade by either chatting with a representative at, or by calling us directly at 1-800-496-0148.

    Links for the updated build will be ready and added to this thread soon.

    Best regards,

    Kurtis, we don't need yet another Rollback thread. Please post any further info in the Rollback Rx thread. I am closing this one.
