Crisis averted: A recap of the OpenSSH and XZ/liblzma incident

A novel backdoor (CVE-2024-3094)  was recently discovered from a widely used xz-utils ‘liblzma’ data compression library build system. This backdoor reportedly targets the OpenSSH server but has the potential to target any application that integrates with ‘systemd’, uses ‘OpenSSL’, and can be contacted from the network.
