Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is one of the most widely-used encryption protocols - despite some security vulnerabilities exposed in the protocol. To date, SSL and early Transport Layer Security (TLS) no longer meet minimum security standards due to vulnerabilities in the protocol for which there are no fixes. It is critically important that entities upgrade to a secure alternative as soon as possible and disable any fallback to both SSL and early TLS.
30 June 2018 is the deadline for disabling SSL/early TLS and implementing a more secure encryption protocol, TLS v1.2, in order to meet the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for safeguarding online data.
It seems that migration to TLS v1.2 has already started, and we are partially hit by this in form of an error message showing when opening LEAPWORK STUDIO: "We were not able to connect to the activation server. You can still use LEAPWORK by clicking OK."
We have published a new release (2018-06-27 Version 2.5.918) with TLS v1.2 implementation, which will allow LEAPWORK to interact with the Licensing server without issues. Release Version 2.5.918 can be downloaded here: https://account.leapwork.com/downloads.
Note: Users can still use the old version by pressing 'OK' button on the error message shown above. We strongly recommend to upgrade to Release Version 2.5.918 as there might be some unforeseen issues due to old TLS protocol in the future.
