Linode Reboots

13 January 2018

While we have already patched most/all of our servers for the Meltdown hardware vulnerability, Linode still needs to mitigate the Spectre vulnerability on all their servers.

This is going to involve a series of 'maintenance windows' where the physical servers are shut down and rebooted. Downtime in each case could be up to 2 hours. See the link below for details.

When we know the schedule we will post details here. According to Linode we should have at least a days notice in each case.

Update: All of our servers are running with updated kernels, and our final web server is undergoing hardware maintenance today (17 Jan).
