Fortinet and the GHOST Vulnerability


For those who follow security news, you are probably aware of an issue in the glibc library called CVE-2015-0235 (making this issue sound even scarier, it is also referred to as GHOST). A number of Fortinet products use this library; however, the impact on these Fortinet products is not as frightening as the name of the vulnerability implies.

Bruce has been working with computers, and related technology, since before the World Wide Web was a thing. He has worked in system and network administration. He has even dabbled in technical support. He has made the switch to technical writing as part of his deep, dark and dastardly plan to make the arcane machinations of IT technology more easily understood by the poor folks who use it. That, and the voices in his head told him it was good idea. Never argue with the voices in your head. People will start to stare.
