My Cloud Firmware Version 5.15.106

WDC Tracking Number: WDC-21009
Published: July 13, 2021

Last Updated:  July 13, 2021


My Cloud devices were using weak 1024-bit DSA keys that could allow the device to be impersonated. This could lead to credential theft, which might eventually cause a device compromise. However, since RSA keys are the default for modern SSH clients, the impact of this vulnerability is limited to older SSH clients or if an attacker blocks a client from using RSA keys. My Cloud Firmware 5.15.106 contains updates to harden the SSH configuration and improve the security of your My Cloud devices.
