…this vulnerability. While we do have nodes that are affected internally, they are not exposed to the Internet, and are being patched now.

Enterprise Chef and Open Source Chef are both vulnerable , and we are working on patch releases today, along with instructions for re-generating the potentially compromised SSL certificates.

Add-ons to Enterprise Chef ( Manage, Push, and Reporting) do not expose the vulnerability to users of Enterprise Chef, though they are packaged …

…created, originally, by multi-decade government-funded research. From DARPA came the microchip, the Internet, the micro hard drive, the DRAM cache, and Siri. From the Department of Defense came GPS, cellular technology, signal compression, and parts of the liquid crystal display and multi-touch screen (joining funding from the CIA, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Energy, which, by the way, developed the lithium-ion battery.)
