New Ganglia released

December 16, 2007 by alex

I helped fix some cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the Ganglia web frontend application. My code was released as 3.0.6.

I chose the name ‘Foss’ since Ganglia has a convention of naming releases after aviators. Joe Foss was a South Dakotan who flew fighters for the Marine Corps in WWII.


Some bugs introduced in 3.0.6 prompted the release of 3.0.7. Of course I hate to say my code has bugs, but I don’t feel too badly about this one. The time from problem report to the release of 3.0.6 was about 48 hours. The importance of fixing the XSS problems was deemed far more important than a full test period prior to release.
