Team Effort Tackles the Heartbleed Bug

You may have heard of the Heartbleed Bug yesterday–CVE-2014-0160
This was one of those bugs you fear ever getting. It allowed for remote users to capture your private ssl key and was introduced through the common OpenSSL package.

The OpenShift Operations team was standing by to test a new OpenSSL package, already prepared by the RHEL team for the HeartBleed bug. Because of our close relationship with the RHEL team we were able to test this update in a development environment in parallel with the quality assurance processes of the RHEL team.

Once the RHEL team completed their tests and RPMs were signed with the official RHEL key, our operations team deployed the official RPMs to production immediately, knowing that they had already passed all of the tests in our development environment combined with the RHEL team’s testing processes.

OpenShift is dedicated to the protection of your applications. This is just an example of how running your applications on OpenShift lets you stay focused on what’s important to you. Your application.
