Last month several alerts were sent to all sites about critical security vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel (CVE-2009-2692 and CVE-2009-2698).
A number of sites in the academic community have subsequently reported root compromised hosts via these vulnerabilities.
Yet, it appears a significant number of EGEE sites have still not applied the security patches - it is essential to actively and urgently ensure all the sites in your region have applied these security patches.
Call to encourage sites to move to the most recent version of WMS available in gLite 3.1, which corresponds to glite-WMS 3.1.21-0 in the gLite repository (known with the nick name of WMS 3.2)
This update contains a new release of the WMS which is a complete redesign of the service. For a summary of the changes introduced in this version, please check these web pages:
NOTE that at last week's GDB, WLCG agreed to request all WLCG sites to upgrade to this version by the end of October.
