2 days ago, we began to hear some noise on a
possible security bug in the SSH. Since then, as a precaution,
we released a patch for a distribution (the history
to update the SSH).

Today, we don't know anything else. We don't even know if
the flaw really exists. Maybe in the coming days
we know something or may not be.

In short, at present, this is not serious at all.
And our teams are there to monitor it and keep you
aware. We have detection systems for scans that would
block in real-time any attack from the Internet.

If the flaw exists, in a moment it will be public and will do
what it takes to secure (in the past we have already
done dozens of times). And if the fault does not, at least
you'll have newest version of SSH on your server.

In short, the rumours are dying down
