Last night a whole bunch of patches for the shellshock security issue were released. Although I am hoping that all of you have your datacenter secured for outside threads and inside threads by isolating networks, firewalls etc… It would be wise to install these patches ASAP. Majority of linux based VMware appliances were impacted, but luckily patching them is not a huge thing. Below you can find a list of the patches and links to the downloads for your convenience.
- VMware vCenter Server Appliance 5.0 U3b – download – release notes
- VMware vCenter Server Appliance 5.1 U2b – download – release notes
- VMware vCenter Server Appliance 5.5 U2a – download – release notes
Note that the downloads are in the middle of the list, so you need to scroll down before you see them. There are also patches for products like the VMware VSA, vSphere Replication, VC Ops etc. Make sure to download those as well!
