Hello again, Fedora community.
This is an update on Fedora's response to CVE-2014-0160 (aka
"Heartbleed"). This is a critical security vulnerability that requires
your immediate attention.
Updates are now available, and are being pushed to our mirror network.
The update announcements for Fedora 19 and Fedora 20 are available at:
Fedora 19: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/package-announce/2014-April/131291.html
Fedora 20: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/package-announce/2014-April/131221.html
Apply updates with
sudo yum upgrade openssl openssl-libs
or with your graphical package manager.
After applying the update, please make sure to restart all services
which use OpenSSL. You may find it easiest to simply restart your
system. However, if you prefer, you may restart any affected services
manually. You can get an overview of programs that need to be restarted
by using the command line tool
(This is included in the `yum-utils` package.) Restart all listed
programs until the output of needs-restarting is empty.
The Fedora Cloud images linked at
https://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora#cloud have been recreated with
the updated packages preinstalled.
Fixes have been applied to servers used in Fedora infrastructure and we
are investigating any further remediation which may be necessary.
