New Sophos Support Phone Numbers in Effect July 1st, 2023

Hi Community!

We have released RED firmware pattern update version 3.0.008. The firmware is immediately available for download and update. This is a maintenance release with several important security updates. Multiple RED firmware components were updated, that collectively address a number of open CVEs relevant to those components, though not all of the CVEs resulted in vulnerabilities on (SD-)RED devices
