Ghost security vulnerability
We have updated mirrors.gandi.net following today’s announcement of the GHOST vulnerability. This newly-discovered flaw is in the popular glibc library, which is used in many Linux distributions and different flavors of Unix. The newly-discovered flaw, which has been present since November 2000, enables an attacker to execute code remotely on a vulnerable system.
We recommend that you upgrade your servers immediately. The following patches have already been made available by the distribution teams:
- Debian: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2015-0235
- RedHat: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2015-0235
- Ubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-2485-1/
We will keep this list and our mirrors up-to-date as more affected distributions release their fixes.
If you are a Simple Hosting customer, we recommend that you restart your instance.Tagged in CloudSecurity
