Upcoming Ares Security Update on May 29th, 2024

Hello Ares Community,

Atlas Systems will be releasing an Ares update (v5.0.10) on Wednesday, May 29th, 2024 (5/24). There is both a client and server update.

This update addresses the following issue:

  • Update the external third-party Newtonsoft dependency used by the Ares System Manager, Web Service, Client, Customization Manager, and Staff Manager applications for security purposes
  • Install a new version of the Ares API (v1.0.8)

For additional details surrounding this update, please see the release below:

Updating Procedures

  • Atlas Systems Hosted: Atlas Systems Hosted: Hosting services will be contacting those on server version 5.0.9 with details regarding your update. If you are on a previous version of Ares and would like to schedule an update, please contact **support@atlas-sys.com** to schedule your update with hosting services.
  • Self-hosted: Please review the updating instructions and coordinate with your IT department to schedule the update. Note: The updating procedure includes new system requirements. The Microsoft ASP.NET Core 8.0 Runtime Bundle must be installed on the Ares Server before running the v5.0.10 server update to prevent disruptions in the Ares API after updating.

If you have any questions, please contact Atlas Support staff at 800-567-7401 x1 or email us at support@atlas-sys.com.

Please share this notice internally as needed.
