+title: Libcloud 0.13.3 released
+author: Tomaz Muraus
+tags:
+  - news
+  - release announcement
+  - security release
+---
+
+This release fixes a security issue with a potential leak of data contained on
+a destroyed DigitalOcean node. Only users who are using a DigitalOcean driver
+are affected.
+
+### Details about the vulnerability
+
+DigitalOcean recently changed the default API behavior from scrub to
+non-scrub when destroying a VM without notifying the customers and API
+consumers.
+
+Libcloud prior to this release doesn't explicitly send "scrub_data" query
+parameter when destroying a node. This means nodes which are destroyed using
+Libcloud are vulnerable to later customers stealing data contained on them.
+
+This release fixes that by always sending "scrub_data" query parameter when
+destroying a DigitalOcean node.
+
+If you are using a DigitalOcean driver, you are strongly encouraged to
+upgrade (or downgrade if you are using 0.14.0-beta3 beta release) to this
+release.
+
+For more information, please see the [Security page][2].
+
+### Download
+
+Libcloud 0.13.3 can be downloaded from
+<https://libcloud.apache.org/downloads.html>
+
+or installed using pip:
+
+{% highlight bash %}
+pip install apache-libcloud==0.13.3
+{% endhighlight %}
+
+It is possible that the file hasn't been synced to all the mirrors yet. If
+this is the case, please use the main Apache mirror -
+https://www.apache.org/dist/libcloud.
+
+### Upgrading
+
+If you have installed Libcloud using pip you can also use it to upgrade it:
+
+{% highlight bash %}
+pip install --upgrade apache-libcloud==0.13.3
+{% endhighlight %}

+title: Quick update about 0.13.3 release and DigitalOcean vulnerability
+author: Tomaz Muraus
+tags:
+  - news
+  - security release
+---
+
+This is a quick update about the recent 0.13.3 security release and the
+DigitalOcean vulnerability.
+
+DigitalOcean updated their blog post. The updated post says that
+scrubbing is now enabled by default for all the newly issued destroy
+requests:
+
+> All Destroys Default to Scrub
+>
+> We have updated the destroy method to scrub on all destroys, both for
+> web and API requests.
+
+This means that no action is required on the client side and upgrading
+to 0.13.3 should not be necessary anymore.
