The Ghost vulnerability only applies to the Teradici Management Console 1.x. Ubuntu has released a fix for CVE-2015-0235 (Ghost vulnerability). Concerned Management Console (MC) administrators should follow the steps below to update their MC.
Teradici recommends that you always perform a MC database backup prior to updating.
