Glibc Vulnerability

A highly critical vulnerability has been uncovered by Google and RedHat engineers in the GNU C Library (glibc), a key component of most Linux distributions. This vulnerability makes nearly all Linux machines, thousands of apps and electronic devices vulnerable to hackers that can take full control over them.

The issue is similar to the last year’s GHOST vulnerability that left countless machines vulnerable to remote code execution (RCE) attacks, representing a major Internet threat.

Same as with GHOST, we believe that in NoTouch, the circumstances are low-risk in pure VMware and Citrix environments because an attack would most probably require a prior full hostile takeover of the VDI server environment. If that happens, there is no gain in going after the clients as the attacker already has full access. Nevertheless and because our client’s security is always our biggest concern, our development team acted fast and updated our OS immediately. The secure version 2.40.446 is available for all customers in our download portal (visit www.stratodesk.com/login).
