Summary of Images and Templates Impacted by Heartbleed Bug

Stacklet has begun to rebuild images and templates of distros containing versions of openssl with the heartbleed bug (CVE-2014-0160). The number of images currently in the subscriber repo requiring a rebuild is large, however with one exception (see below) the images do not start public tls -enabled services when booted. Hence a fresh install is not exploitable via the heartbeat bug, allowing the end user to upgrade the system before enabling any public services (eg https). By design we install a minimal set of internet daemons and enable the bare minimum.

Stacklet recommends the SolusVM templates for experts only, ie we will only offer cursory support especially for networking issues.
