Hewlett-Packard scrambled this week to alert customers about a potential security issue in the software of its enterprise-class StoreOnce deduplication appliances.
HP said the security risk does not impact its latest HP StoreOnce deduplication appliances, and that a patch will be made available shortly for older models affected by the problem. A blogger who goes by the name "Technion" took credit for discovering the problem.
HP issued a statement saying the problem "does not affect StoreOnce systems with the current version 3.0 software including the HP StoreOnce B6200 and HP StoreOnce VSA product offerings. HP takes security issues very seriously and is working actively on a fix."
