|OIT - Server Virtualization - Issue discovered in VMware backup UPDATE
Update on the remediation of the VMware backup flaw.
Remediation efforts are scheduled to complete, or have completed, this week for DSA, DRC, DOT, FCC, DODD, and OBM. The remaining agencies for remediation efforts are TAX, DOH, DYS, JFS, and OIT. Many of which are in progress but are taking some time due to the number of systems to correct. This corrective effort is drawing to a close and should be completed soon.
Weekly progress updates will be provided until completed. Also, the remediation teams will be reaching out to individual agencies to share the list of impacted virtual servers and the targeted remediation windows for each.
If an agency still manages their own VMware and backup environment, you are encouraged to contact VMware for assistance in resolving this issue as this condition likely does exist within an agency environment as well. Detailed information on the issue can be found under the VMware KB article 2090639.
