OpenLogic has taken all necessary measures to ensure our customers are protected from the critical vulnerabilities represented by CVE-2014-6271 and CVE-2014-7169, also known as Shellshock. All OpenLogic infrastructures have been updated and patched to protect from exploitation by Shellshock:

Latest open source vulnerability further highlights importance of security

  
  
  

Earlier this year, the discovery of the Heartbleed vulnerability caused a tremendous amount of discussion and worry around open source security. While some argued that this incident revealed that open source is not as reliable as originally thought, most experts believed that Heartbleed was essentially an anomaly, one that would drive companies and IT personnel to improve their security efforts.

Software security is making headlines today, whether it’s the exposure of private information or critical systems being compromised. It’s more important than ever for organizations to understand why secure code matters and how to create safer applications.

Best practices needed to ensure open source security

  
  
  

As open source software continues to gain prominence, organizations around the world are beginning to realize that they need a new approach to security. The more popular and important open source software becomes, the more it will be targeted, and the greater the likelihood that any vulnerabilities will be exploited by cybercriminals.

Heartbleed raises more open source security challenges for federal government

  
  
  

The discovery of the Heartbleed OpenSSL security vulnerability in April seems like old news at this point, but its impact continues to reverberate. Countless firms have been affected by this revelation, and few have fully put the open source flaw behind them.

Homeland Security turning to open source software to improve security

  
  
  

The Homeland Security Agency is primarily dedicated to protecting the United States from external threats. While these efforts have typically centered on the physical realm, now the DHS is turning its attention to the digital realm. As ZDNet contributor Steve J. Vaughan-Nichols recently highlighted, the DHS now offers a service specifically designed to help organizations examine open source software code for potential security threats.

Webinar recap: Top tactics to reduce your open source security risk

  
  
  

The current state of open source software (OSS) security may surprise you – with over 13 billion OSS component requests annually, a surprising 60% of organizations do not track security vulnerabilities in their code. This is a big reason why open source vulnerabilities such as Heartbleed and the recent PHP flaw affecting WordPress and Drupal sites are catching organizations unaware.

Webinar recap: Five ways to create more secure code

  
  
  

We recently held a webinar discussing software risks and organizational impacts that arise from security flaws in code (you can watch the recording here). Hackingdata breaches, and functional failures are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to security vulnerabilities and it’s telling that the average application out there has 22.4 security risks.
