  • fb:21702 - Upgraded the eNicq 6 Microsoft .Net Framework to 4.6.1 due to a flaw in the Microsoft .NET 4.5.2 framework which negotiated TLS version towards the lowest compatible version, creating a risk of the software communicating over the now deprecated TLS 1.0.  The .NET framework version 4.6.1, however, will negotiate towards the highest possible version, allowing VON to lock communications to TLS 1.1 or better in the future.
