Last night we patched the vCloud Express platform with the MS11-100 update from Microsoft, but it is very important that you also update your Windows-based machines as quickly as possible. As Terremark does not manage your virtual machines, until you perform the update, your machines are vulnerable. If a machine is impacted it will use all available resources and can impact the resources that are available to other customers. As always, if your virtual machine is found to be infected, compromised, or impacting the infrastructure/other customers the infected VM will be restricted from network access and powered down. It is imperative that all Windows machines are updated as quickly as possible! For more information about this vulnerability check out Microsoft’s Security Bulletin.
As always if you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or discuss here in the forums.
