As you may be aware, researchers have discovered security flaws in processors manufactured by AMD, ARM Holdings, and Intel. These flaws make it possible for a malicious attacker to obtain sensitive information through exploits popularly named Meltdown and Spectre. Further information is available at https://meltdownattack.com
Developers have been aware of this for some time, and have made available updates to mitigate the security flaws. Due to the severity and scope of these potential exploits, our team is working to ensure that our infrastructure is updated within the next 24 hours.
If you have managed support with us your server will be automatically patched. We will need to restart the server after this updated which shouldn't take longer than 15 minutes.
If you have unmanaged support with us, please open a ticket from our client area portal and we will assist you.
We appreciate your understanding during this brief outage, to ensure that your hosted services continue to be secure and reliable.
