WDY Enterprises, LLC acquired the assets of Flexible Internet several
years ago and has provided technical operations with an extremely
small number of disruptions or changes to the user experience.
However, to immediately counter an actual detected attack, we are
instituting new protective measures for Flexible Internet
Flexible Internet is receiving a number of major security enhancements.
- We are introducing encrypted network traffic for webmail. Using
encryption helps to protect your email account (both the
username/password combinations used to access it, and the content of
your email messages) from theft and misuse. This update is mandatory
-- you will find yourself redirected to an encrypted interface, even
if you try to access the "old way". You will likely want to update
your bookmarks in the coming days.
- To detect and deter "brute force" attacks against your email
accounts through the webmail interface, we are also instituting a
second layer of authentication. Your browser will be forced to log in
(with your Flexible Internet email address/password combination),
before you'll be presented with the Flexible Internet webmail
interface login. This means you will be required to log in
twice before you can access webmail. This is also mandatory,
and was the only way to integrate WDY Enterprises, LLC security
capabilities into the legacy Flexible Internet
- POP3, IMAP and SMTP (ie: smart phone, or non-browser based access
to your email) have also also been modified to detect and deter brute
force attacks. These changes should be transparent.
- The final enhancement is optional. We now offer fully encrypted
client access (smart phone and non-browser based access, via SMTP,
POP3, and IMAP). However, this requires that you reconfigure your
email programs to point at the correct hosts. While we advise that
all accesses be encrypted, we recognize that this may pose
difficulties for legacy devices and, thus, we have not made the
functionality mandatory. If you would like to take advantage of
encrypted POP3 and IMAP access, you can get the correct settings at http://wdyllc.com/support/OtherClients.html
or at WDYLLC's support
