Hi,

The OpenSSH team released a security advisory about a vulnerability affecting both OpenSSH 6.2 and 6.3.

The good news is that this vulnerability only affects newer versions of OpenSSH . If you are using Ubuntu 13.10 or Fedora 19, you are likely vulnerable. All other Linux distributions available at OVH.com appears to be safe. To double check, log into your server via SSH and type the following command:

# sshd -v
OpenSSH_6.0p1 Debian-4, OpenSSL 1.0.1e 11 Feb 2013 usage: sshd [-46DdeiqTt] [-b bits] [-C connection_spec] [-c host_cert_file] [-f config_file] [-g login_grace_time] [-h host_key_file] [-k key_gen_time] [-o option] [-p port] [-u len]


If you see OpenSSH_6.2 or OpenSSH_6.3, you know you are using the affected versions.

The OpenSSH team explained the vulnerability in details in their advisory: http://www.openssh.com/txt/gcmrekey.adv

So if your server is affected, please update now.

Regards.

Tarik.

Load Balancing IP4#

We have launched our Load Balancing IP solution!

The Load Balancing IP is an easy to setup and affordable mean of balancing traffic across your server farm. You can monitor your server behind the Load Balancing IP to stop or resume traffic for machines depending on their availability using different mechanisms, such as ICMP (ping) or OCO probes.

Optionally, you can add an SSL certificate to your Load Balancing IP, either provided by OVH or obtained from a valid certification authority.

More information here: http://www.ovh.com/us/solutions/ip-l...cing/index.xml

For US customers, you can order the service from here: http://www.ovh.com/us/solutions/ip-l...e-optimale.xml For Canadian customers, you can order the service from here: http://www.ovh.com/ca/en/solutions/i...e-optimale.xml

You can then manage your Load Balancing IP from our RESTful API (https://ca.api.ovh.com/console/#/ip)
