Default All Servers - SSH Access Restricted

In response to a new possible OpenSSH exploit brought to our attention today, we have been forced to disable SSH access for all of our shared and reseller customers and we strongly recommend our dedicated clients restrict access to their SSH services by firewall as well.

We are currently developing a patch in response to this new threat and we will release the full details as soon as possible. We will update this thread within the next 24 hours with futher information as it becomes available.


July 8 at 6:40 PM: SSH has been enabled on a per IP basis. Details here.
July 14 at 8:00 PM: SSH access has been restored. Details here.
