Stopping the Bleeding with CloudPhysics
You’ve seen the logo above lots in the news over the course of the last year. One of the very interesting thing about the Heartbleed vulnerability was the incredible breadth of its effect. It was estimated that over 70% of internet sites using SSL were affected.
VMware and the Heartbleed Vulnerability
One of the interesting things that came up as the OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability was discovered, was that VMware vCenter, vSphere, and other management tools and products were affected by the Hearbleed vulnerability.
Luckily, our friends at CloudPhysics want to help you with figuring out just how affected you may be. Irfan Ahmad has written a great post here at the CloudPhysics blog to show how the CloudPhysics Observer can evaluate your exposure to Heartbleed, plus you gain access to all of the other great features of the platform.
No News is Not Good News
As the big thrust of news on the vulnerability was released, people scrambled to assess and fix the issues. But at the same time, once the news was no longer on the front pages for us, many organizations relaxed on their aggressiveness to attend to potential vulnerabilities.
As the image shown below courtesy of Irfan’s blog, you can see that there are many unpatched environments out there still today.
Now is the time to make sure that you aren’t left vulnerable. Make sure to go over to the CloudPhysics site and get your free trial underway. Don’t be caught out in an easily correctable situation.
