So we should all be concerned that Mark Cox, a Red Hat Distinguished Software Engineer and the Apache Software Foundation (ASF)’s VP of Security, this week tweeted, “OpenSSL 3.0.7 update to fix Critical CVE out next Tuesday 1300-1700UTC.”
How bad is “Critical”? According to OpenSSL, an issue of critical severity affects common configurations and is also likely exploitable.
There isn’t enough detail yet to know exactly what the issue is. It’s forthcoming, however, so time to get those patch windows ready.
