OpenSSL - Heartbleed | Discus Systems [cached]

"Given that over half of the world's webservers use Apache, and Apache uses OpenSSL, the majority of people are using applications built on top of OpenSSL on a regular basis," explained Steve Pate, the Chief Architect at cloud services company HyTrust.

OpenSSL has a history of being vulnerable to attacks, Pate says, with the first flaw spotted by HyTrust back in May of 2009. However, Pate also notes that though OpenSSL 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta already have Heartbleed bug fixes available, if the affected versions are being used, the exploit may have already been used by hackers to swipe sensitive data.

Steve Pate, chief architect at virtualization security firm HyTrust, said that while administrators should always make sure users are running fully patched software, the risk of attacks targeting this vulnerability in the wild are likely to be low.

Pate explained that in the case of the vSphere Client vulnerability, an attacker would have to get in the middle of an update chain that runs when the vCenter Server platform is updated and no longer matches the end user's version of the vSphere client, at which point the vulnerable component is launched.
The update comes just two days after VMware told users that 28 of its products contain versions of OpenSSL subject to the infamous Heartbleed security flaw.
The company has yet to roll out a fix for that flaw as it releases the patch for the vSphere Client vulnerability. Still, administrators need not fret much over their VMware products, Pate said. He prominent that as few VMware implementations directly face the public web, the risk posed by Heartbleed will be lower than that of platforms and applications that are more readily accessible to potential attackers

TrueCrypt's abrupt demise 'puzzling, bizarre' [cached]

Pate noted TrueCrypt was developed by an unknown group of software engineers and "attempts to contact them typically results in no response.
