This article is about security for HFS users.

Many people ask: Am I safe running this server software?
100% safety on the net is, of course, impossible to achieve, but HFS is inherently secure.

For example, there are no current known security bugs in the latest version. HFS is open source, so anyone is able to easily check for security flaws (and we have many expert users).

Although it was not designed to be extremely robust, HFS is very stable and has been used for months without a restart (see forum topic).

Secure your Windows

Before worrying about HFS, you should be concerned about your Windows system. To secure your computer, follow this advice:

  • Keep Windows updated with Windows Update.
  • Use a good and updated firewall.
  • Use a good and updated antivirus.

If you comply with these rules, the risks are very low.

What about strange logs?

If you see scary requests in the log, don't worry. They are simply requests. By default, HFS only logs fulfilled requests, so, if no reply has been logged, the request has not been fulfilled.


HTTPS is not supported natively at the moment. In the meantime, you can try adding HTTPS support by using STunnel. You can read an article on our forum where this discussed in detail.
