Hi ljkrishnan and welcome.
The alert you got should be related to new firmware release for EX2/EX4.
You can get more info here
By the way, following the upgrade procedure via WD Dashboard, you should update your EX with no trouble, with “one click”. AT the end a reboot will be necessary to complete procedure.
anyone tried the latest EX2 firmware 1.05.36 ? will installing the firmware wipeout all previous setting like user account, password, access right ?
Can we backup previous setting and restore it ?
Yes, already downloaded and installed. No issues, up to now, but only one security fix … Hopefully, WD should provide another upgrade to fix all the issues reported on forum Back to your questions, no. The upgrade procedure does not wipeout your config. Nothing will be changed. And yes, anyway, you can save/reload your config from WD Dashboard, just in case … Ciao
Hi all, just for yor information!
I had fw 1.05.35 in my EX4, did an automatic upgrade, it installed and rebooted self,
after the reboot it was fw 1.05.30 installed !!!
Then I did a manually upgrade as described at http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/updates/?family=wdfmycloud_ex4
and now is it 1.05.36
Would appear the new firmware breaks SSL support in Python. Open python and type import ssl
Research points to a mismatch between the compiled python library _ssl.so and openssl not being compiled with the SSLv2 symbols. It’s not that I’m using SSLv2 it’s that the python module wants to ensure it’s disabled but calling it fails
