    Have you checked your heart lately? Good.
    How about your OpenSSL library? No? Well, you should.

    There is a rather dangerous OpenSSL bug on the wild, that affects versions 1.0.1 to 1.0.1f (inclusive). Briefly, all services that employ HTTPS and use the buggy OpenSSL library are exposed to sensitive information leaks. Passwords, certificates and just about anything you want to keep private can be stolen. For a more thorough explanation on this subject, we suggest you read this site, which has all the information you need.

    Hello okeanos users,

    Next to your 'machines' and 'networks' two new tabs just appeared. The first one reads 'public IPs'. Until now, every machine that you created got connected to the public network (Internet) and was automatically assigned a public IPv4 by the ~okeanos infrastructure.

    New openSUSE Image!
    Hello everybody,

    As you may have noticed, a new Image has appeared under System Images. And yes, it is openSUSE! Many of our users had asked if we could provide an official openSUSE image, so there you have it!

    ~okeanos now supports openSUSE all the way, which means there are also official packages of the kamaki command-line client and the snf-image-creator tool for the ~okeanos advanced users.

    So, go ahead. Take them for a spin and see how it goes.

    the ~okeanos team
