Security Notice About CVE-2024-3094 (xz-utils)

A security flaw has been found in the xz project that, under certain conditions, can work as a backdoor for world-facing openSSH servers.

This vulnerability is not present in any of the Torizon OS (formerly TorizonCore) releases.

The affected xz versions are xz 5.6.0 and xz 5.6.1. However, our current Torizon OS releases follow the upstream OpenEmbedded project, which currently ships version 5.2.6.

In the unlikely event that Torizon OS is affected by a future vulnerability, you will be able to securely and remotely update all your field devices to a newer version containing the fix. We provide frequent releases with long-term support, enabling you to keep your production fleet safe without any maintenance downtime.
