Ghost Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

Ghost Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

A new critical vulnerability is threatening the Linux community, the flaw affects the glibc GNU C library. The vulnerability is present in all Linux systems dating back to 2000 and could be exploited by attackers to execute code and remotely gain control of Linux machines.

The vulnerability was first discovered by researchers at Qualys and it affects glibc library from version 2.2 included in Linux systems since November 2000. However, at the moment there is no way to tell if cyber criminals or state-sponsored hackers have been exploiting this vulnerability in the wild.

All Scala Hosting servers were updated and patched against this vulnerability. We also secured all managed VPS servers, cloud servers and dedicated servers.
