CRITICAL GLIBC VULNERABILITY FOUND (GHOST)
Hi ~okeanos users,
As some of you might have heard, a new glibc vulnerability has been found. It has been named GHOST (CVE 2015-0235) and affects most Linux systems. You can find a detailed description of this vulnerability here. From the ~okeanos images that we provide at this moment, the affected ones are the following:
- (K)Ubuntu, prior to version 14.04
- Debian, all versions
- CentOS, all versions
- Oracle Linux, all versions
On our part, we have updated our own systems, but you are strongly advised to update your VMs too . Moreover, we will shortly ship new versions of the aforementioned images with the patched glibc.
the ~okeanos team
: On Debian and Debian derivative systems that means
and on CentOS/RHEL
Finally, reboot your VMs.
