QTS 4.3.4.0551 build 20180413
- This QTS update changes the file system of the system partition to ext4 for ARM-based models with Annapurna Labs processors. For data security reasons, you are not able to downgrade QTS to a previous version after this update.
Affected models: TS-131P, TS-231P, TS-431P, TS-531P, TS-231+, TS-431+, TS-231P2, TS-431P2, TS-431X, TS-431X2, TS-531X, TS-831X, TS-1231XU-RP, TS-1231XU, TS-831XU-RP, TS-831XU, TS-431XU-RP, TS-431XU, TS-431XeU, and TS-1635.
- To ensure system stability, QNAP recommends updating and then restarting QVPN Service in App Center after you update QTS to 4.3.4.
- As QTS previous versions of ARM models do not support snapshots, when you upgrade to QTS 4.3.4, the original volume cannot use this feature immediately. To solve this problem, you have to back up the existing data on your QNAP NAS to external storage. Then you can rebuild the QNAP NAS and take snapshots to the new storage pool with multiple volumes.
- QTS 4.3.4 is the final available firmware update for the following models:
TS-EC1679U-SAS-RP, TS-EC1679U-RP, TS-1679U-RP, TS-EC1279U-SAS-RP, TS-EC1279U-RP, TS-1279U-RP, TS-1079 Pro, TS-EC879U-RP, TS-879U-RP, TS-1270U-RP, TS-870U-RP, TS-470U-RP, TS-470U-SP, TS-1269U-RP, TS-869U-RP, TS-469U-RP, TS-469U-SP, TS-879 Pro, TVS-870, TS-870 Pro, TS-870, TVS-670, TS-670 Pro, TS-670, TVS-470, TS-470 Pro, TS-470, TS-869 Pro, TS-869L, TS-669 Pro, TS-669L, TS-569 Pro, TS-569L, TS-469 Pro, TS-469L, TS-269 Pro, TS-269L, IS-400 Pro.

- When QTS 4.3.x is installed on NAS models running on 64-bit Intel and AMD processors, some applications may not be supported. To check if installed apps on your NAS are compatible with QTS 4.3.x, download the QTS 64-bit compatibility tool and install it on your current QTS build.

- Starting from QTS 4.3.4, QNAP NAS devices no longer support creating storage pools or static volumes using NVMe PCIe/M.2 SSDs. However, this limitation does not apply to the SSDs installed in built-in M.2 slots or on QM2 expansion cards.

- Unlocking encrypted volumes would take a long time after the NAS restarted if users chose not to save the encryption key, and users would not be able to access certain applications.
- Fixed a cross-site scripting vulnerability to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information.
- Updated ClamAV to the latest version to fix multiple vulnerabilities.
- Unexpected errors in the RAID configuration files would hinder users from creating new storage pools after existing storage pools failed.
- Media Library could not set multiple shared folders as media folders if they shared the same path.
- The confirmation message string for file system check would repeat several times in certain languages.
- Enabling Service Binding would cause the SNMP service to stop functioning after users updated QTS to 4.3.4.0486 build 20180215.
- Fixed a vulnerability in Samba that could allow authenticated users to arbitrarily change the passwords of other users (CVE-2018-1057).
- Fixed a vulnerability in Samba that could allow for denial-of-service attacks on the Print Spooler service (CVE-2018-1050).
- File Station could not display the files in a subfolder after users moved this folder into another subfolder.
- An error message would appear when users cut and paste a file from a folder to its subfolder in File Station.
