Updates 1/30/2015: PHP applications are found to be vulnerable. This includes Wordpress and other PHP based applications. Haldaemon and init, common applications, use the glibc library. If you have these running, (and chances are you are) you will need to reboot your server, not just specific services. To be clear, full reboot is more than likely required to ensure a complete secure environment. What is GHOST? The exploit, being called ‘GHOST’, is a buffer overflow that can be executed against two commands that are part of… Read More

Or what if your sites get ‘slashdotted’?  This is where a link to your site pops up on a very popular site. While the additional exposure is great, if your infrastructure isn’t ready to handle a large influx of traffic, it can easily overwhelm your server.
