Important] Notice of API (Push Notification Function) Specification Changes

Thank you for using learningBOX. LearningBOX will change the API specifications starting with the Ver. 2.19 release. This announcement is for customers who use API integration. Changes to the API Before change After change Depending on the implementation method, communication may fail Hard coding may be judged as invalid notification How to check the validity of PUSH notifications No. 1: Obtain the contents of the transmission. No. 2: Remove the parameter "hash" from the transmitted content and temporarily save it. No.3: Add "secret" to the back of the sent content without changing the order of the parameters. Part 4: After concatenating the parameter values of the sent content with "|", retrieve the hash value using sha256. No.5: Check if the hash value is consistent with the hash value obtained from the transmitted contents.

Notice Concerning Security Enhancements Thank you for using learningBOX. LearningBOX will introduce WAF (Web Application Firewall) in the shared environment starting with the Ver2.19 release as part of our security enhancement efforts. In this announcement, we have summarized the concerns that have been raised after the introduction of the WAF. Reasons for Introducing WAF In recent years, cyber attack methods have become more sophisticated, and the time between the discovery of a vulnerability and an attack has become shorter. In order to protect our customers' personal information and services from increasingly sophisticated cyber-attack threats, learningBOX has decided to implement WAF. What is WAF? WAF is a security tool to protect websites by detecting and preventing attacks that exploit web application vulnerabilities. It protects services from attacks by blocking malicious requests before they reach the server. How WAF Works WAF intervenes in the communication between the access source and the web server and uses "signatures" to detect attacks and prevent unauthorized access. When WAF detects an attack, it intercepts the communication and logs it, while at the same time sending a warning message to the access source on behalf of the web server. At the same time, it returns a warning message to the access source on behalf of the Web server. A typical firewall does not check the content of the communication or how it is communicated. Communications that pass through the system's port of entry will reach the web application, even if the content is unauthorized. IDS (Intrusion Detection System) and IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) use signatures to detect unauthorized access, similar to WAF, but their accuracy in detecting unauthorized access to web applications is low and they cannot provide sufficient security measures. In shared environments, WAF will be introduced from learningBOX [Ver. 2.19]. With the introduction of WAF, there is a possibility that the global IP address you are using will be determined to be blocked. Countermeasures when 403Forbidden is displayed If the message "403 Forbidden" is displayed on your browser, please wait a while and try accessing the site again. If you are accessing the site via a VPN or other means, accessing the site without a VPN may improve the situation.
