Fuga platform maintenance 23 February

Fuga platform maintenance 23 February

This notification concerns scheduled maintenance on the Fuga platform which will take place on Tuesday 23 February from 00:01 until 04:00 CET. Google and Red Hat have released a patch for a critical security vulnerability in the widely used GNU C library (glibc). The leak allows an attack, whereby, through a stack-based buffer overflow, arbitrary code can be executed. More information about the vulnerability can be found here: https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2015-7547 Due to the seriousness of this issue, we have decided to patch this vulnerability during a maintenance window scheduled ahead of our regular maintenance windows.
Get started with the OpenStack CLI and API

Get started with the OpenStack CLI and API

There are three ways to interact with your Fuga OpenStack environment: through the Horizon web interface, using the OpenStack CLI tools and directly from your application using a RESTful API. Using Horizon is by far the easiest, but also the most restrictive in terms of possible automation. Using the CLI tools gives you more options, and the most possibilities can be gained by directly interacting with the API from within your application.

Vulnerability affecting OpenSSH

Vulnerability affecting OpenSSH

Yesterday, the OpenSSH project reported a client side vulnerability affecting OpenSSH versions 5.4 to 7.1. The vulnerability could cause an SSH client to leak key information, potentially exposing users to man-in-the-middle attacks. The vulnerability could allow a malicious SSH server to make the OpenSSH client leak memory contents, including data such as private keys. The vulnerability exists only after a client has successfully authenticated with a malicious SSH server. The vulnerability only exists in the client, not the server software itself.

Fuga hardware maintenance 16/17 December

During the night of 16 on 17 December, we will perform maintenance to the Fuga platform to upgrade the hardware configurations of the compute nodes. This maintenance window starts at 00:01 CET and will end around 04:00 CET. We will add additional memory to the servers in small, carefully selected batches. We will bring each server and all instances on it down, add memory to the server, and reboot. We expect the downtime for servers and instances to be about 15 minutes each.
