VMware Support Alert – ALERT: Response to Heartbleed OpenSSL security issue

In our effort to provide our viewers with up to the minute information on VMware related news and topics, we’re posting the following Special Alert direct from VMware Support Insider.

http://bit.ly/1kvpdPN

heartbleedThis week, a new vulnerability was discovered affecting SSL, a protocol most of the Internet uses to encrypt and secure communications. The VMware Security Engineering, Communications, and Response group (vSECR) is investigating the OpenSSL issue dubbed “Heartbleed”. For information on which VMware products may be affected and resolution/remediation steps, refer to the two KB articles at the bottom of this post.

For the curious, we would like to quickly explain why this particular vulnerability could be a risk across the Internet. The bug — dubbed “Heartbleed” — allows anybody to read the memory on a system that is supposed to be protected by SSL.

An anonymous attacker could potentially steal any information from an SSL-secured communication when the issue is not addressed. Best practices dictate that websites and web service providers should always use SSL-encrypted communication when dealing with sensitive information like usernames, passwords, and bank info. Heartbleed could breach that information to anybody who knows how to extract it without leaving a trace.

Top VMware Blog 2014 Voting Now Open

Ok, so not as critical as political voting but still just as exciting is the yearly vSphere-Land top blog voting that happens each year.

Well, it’s that time of year again. The vLaunchPad Top 50 on vSphere-Land is up for grabs and I really hope that I get to stay in the running!  I know that my content has declined over the past years, but hopefully the readers still out there enjoy the resources that I continue to deliver.  Also, there are a TON of exciting other blogs out there that deserve the recognition.

So, what will happen? Will Duncan keep his #1 title for another year? Will someone else in the top 5 drop out of the running? Will a newcomer be presented into the top 10?
The decisions are up to you! I just hope that you vote for me, and also check out some other great blogs while in the process.

Vote Early and Vote Often!  Voting ends on March 17th and results will be revealed on a special live podcast.
For full details visit vSphere-Land.com

Help steer what we do with EMC World

Things are in full swing for EMC World 2014.  The venue is paid for, sessions are selected and content being tweaked, and tons of other fun/exciting things are being worked on.  Now this is where you come in.

Chad Sakac recently blasted a post asking for your input on what we do with our Hands-On Lab experience at the conference.  Instead of re-writing what he’s already said, I’ll just include it here for your review.

There’s something really exciting we are doing for the first time this year and need your input to make it as valuable for YOU (EMCers, EMC Partners, Customers) as possible.

For the last three years, as any of you EMC World veterans will know, we have run very successful Hands-On Labs at the show.  As successful as the labs have been, we heard your feedback from last year. This year we are going to introduce Guided Labs as part of the overall Hands-On Labs experience.

So, what’s a guided vLab I hear you ask?  Well, you could look at it as being somewhere between your standard self-paced Hands-On lab and Instructor-Led Training.  Every attendee will get their own terminal with their very own lab but rather than just take the lab yourself without necessarily getting any context or having the ability to easily ask questions, there will be an instructor in the room providing that context, walking through the lab exercises with you and answering any questions you might have.  This is a really great opportunity for you to really get some time with the subject matter experts across our various products and solutions.

Of course the next question becomes: “how do we know what you would like to see as sessions in the guided labs?”

Here’s where we need your to help.  We’ve got a bunch of options already in the mix for these guided labs but need you to tell us which ones you want to see at the show.  Below is a link to a poll with 21 different labs we have come up with.  We would like you to take that poll and pick your top 5 preferences.  Based on your input, that’s what we will put in play at the show.  This survey is only going to be open for a week so get your mouse clicking and get voting!

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6YQBCRT

(BTW – EMC World stuff is in full flight, including some off-the wall ideas)

Thanks for your input and I hope to see you in Las Vegas!
