HP said its latest StoreOnce B6200 physical appliance and HP StoreOnce VSA virtual storage appliance are not impacted by the vulnerability. The company also said it expects to have a software patch for its older StoreOnce products available for customer downloads on July 7.
The HP spokesperson declined to say whether HP issued its StoreOnce security bulletin in response to the Technion blog post.
HP has done a good job with regular patches and updates to its products over the years, said Dave Butler, president of Enterprise Computing Solutions, a Mission Viejo, Calif.-based solution provider and HP partner.
"Not too much or too little," Butler said. "Just regularly across the board. This is the first I've heard of this security issue. Over the years, the only concern I had with HP patches and updates is when a customer's power goes out and they weren't able to update something when they thought they did it."
