RESOLVED: Expedited: Non-Disruptive Red Hat Enterprise Linux security patching for CVE-2014-7169
Service Restored

19:40
This maintenance is complete.


11:52
A critical security vulnerability for Bash has been identified in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

ITS Systems has been monitoring vendor response and follow up. A previous patch for CVE-2014-6271 was released and applied last week to RHEL hosts managed by ITS Systems. Red Hat released a subsequent patch for CVE-2014-7169 to address further concerns for the Bash vulnerabilities.

The latest patch will be applied to all RHEL hosts managed by ITS Systems in the following stages, today (9/29):

- All TEST (and lower) hosts, 11:30 am
- All QUAL (and lower) hosts, 12:00 pm
- All PROD (and lower) hosts, 12:30 pm

The patch is expected to be non-disruptive, and has been confirmed to be so on internal test systems.

Based on the tests with the current patch and the lack of any adverse effects with application of patch for CVE-2014-6271, the risk and impact is expected to be Low.

Patches will be applied throughout the day, with completion expected by 5:00 pm.

Critical security updates for Red Hat related to this vulnerability are being made available on the Campus RHNS Service as they are released (typically within 30-60 minutes).

If you run Red Hat Enterprise Linux and do not yet have your systems connected to Satellite, you can find out more information here:
