ASUSTOR rolls out ADM 4.0.5.RRS1 and 3.5.9.RRS1 NAS updates

ADM 4.x and 3.x see minor updates today!

ASUSTOR released two updates today for its ADM NAS operating system. If you own newer enclosures you’ll be able to update to 4.0.5.RRS1, while 3.5.9.RRS1 is pushed out for AS-20, AS-30, and AS-60 servers. The two releases contain minor improvements and fixes, but I’d recommend keeping your OS updated regardless.

What’s new in ADM 4.0.5.RRS1

Even the best NAS needs to run the latest OS release for you to get the most out of the server. Here are all the improvements and fixes contained within ADM 4.0.5.RRS1:

  • Improved security with enabling the HTTP Content Security Policy header.
  • Added ransomware and malware removal mechanisms that recognize abnormal behavior.
  • The default minimum TLS protocol for HTTPS connections is now TLS 1.2 after initialization.
  • OpenSSL updated to fix potential vulnerabilities: CVE-2022-0778.
  • Fix potential security issues.
  • Improved multilingual strings.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes.

It’s worth noting that if you’re upgrading from ADM 3 to ADM 4 with this release, you will encounter the following changes:

  • Surveillance Center will no longer support local display mode.
  • USB TV dongles will no longer be supported.
  • UPnP Media Server and iTunes Server can no longer be installed and will be removed after the upgrade.
  • The current version of RALUS (14.2.1180.r66) cannot be executed.
  • iTunes Server is not functional. Use OwnTone as a workaround.
  • Volumes, including MyArchive created on ADM 4.0 devices employing Linux Kernel 5 cannot be read using the AS6004U on AS10 series.

ASUSTOR recommends everyone upgrade all used media apps for maximum compatibility. You can learn more about retired apps in ADM 4.0 on the ASUSTOR website.

What’s new in ADM 3.5.9.RRS1

ASUSTOR is not supporting ADM 4.0 on older enclosures, namely those part of the AS-20, AS-30, AS-60 families. Instead, security patches and minor updates will be rolled out for ADM 3. See below for the list of changes in 3.5.9.RRS1:

  • The minimum TLS protocol for HTTPS connections is now transparently displayed. If the TLS protocol version used by a browser does not meet the security settings, a connection will not be established. TLS 1.0 will no longer be supported for security reasons.
  • Improved security with enabling the HTTP Content Security Policy header.
  • Added ransomware and malware removal mechanisms that recognize abnormal behavior.
  • OpenSSL updated to fix potential vulnerabilities: CVE-2022-0778.
  • Fix potential security issues.

It’s simple to update your ASUSTOR enclosure, regardless of which version of ADM is installed.
