The cloud-init packages provide a set of init scripts for cloud instances. Cloud instances need special scripts to run during initialization to retrieve and install SSH keys, and to let the user run various scripts.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: cloud-init (19.4). (BZ#1811912)

Security Fix(es):

  • cloud-init: default configuration disabled deletion of SSH host keys (CVE-2018-10896)
