Important

This SK brings Mobile Access Portal Agent version 800007040, which resolves a security issue that allows a remote attacker acting as a Man-in-The-Middle to hold the hash of a portal user’s domain credential (only the hash, not the actual password). To be protected from this, you should ensure the latest Mobile Access Portal Agent is installed on all your security gateways. To check the version number, run this command from the Expert mode:

# cat $CVPNDIR/htdocs/SNX/CSHELL/cshell_ver.txt


The Check Point Mobile Access Portal offers a variety of on-demand client technologies, including SSL Network Extender, Compliance Scan and Secure Workspace.

The on-demand technologies are downloaded and invoked by the Mobile Access Portal Agent. While for Internet Explorer browser the Portal Agent is implemented as an ActiveX control, for all other web browsers it is implemented as standalone Java application.

Note: There is no Mobile Access Portal Agent version for the IPsec VPN portal. Users may work with this portal from Internet Explorer only.
