"GHOST" Linux Exploit - January 27, 2015

A new exploit hit the Internet today called "GHOST."  Modern Retail considers this a major vulnerability which affects all systems running the Linux operating system.  This exploit could potentially give hackers control of your system without even knowing any login IDs or passwords.

Given the nature of this exploit, and the potential financial and security harm it could do to your business, Modern Retail has proactively patched every Linux system we manage.

As of 8 pm CST tonight, all Linux systems have been patched and your website will no longer be vulnerable to this exploit.

As always, if you have any questions, please submit a Support Request, we're happy to help.
