Wowza Security upgrade


Recently we received a email “Reminder: Security update for your Wowza media server software”.

We later upgraded our wowza version to 4.7.2(latest)

So just confirming, that is it? Please keep me posted.



Thanks for contacting the Wowza Community.

Updating to 4.7.2 version, you have applied the security update per this section:

New Wowza Streaming Engine 4 Update
What is it?
An update to your existing Wowza Streaming Engine instance that addresses MOST of the potential security vulnerabilities.
Why should I choose this option?
You want to avoid the complexity of migrating the settings and content from your potentially vulnerable Wowza Streaming Engine instance to a new media server instance, and just update your existing media server instance to address potential security vulnerabilities (manual configuration may be required to address some of the potential vulnerabilities).
How do I get the software?
