CHI-F Emergency Maintenance - Patching Servers "Meltdown" and "Spectre"

Date: Monday, 29 Jan 2018

Start time: 9am GMT

End time: 3pm GMT

Event Details:

Update - all maintenance has been completed.

We will be performing patches for security vulnerabilities "Meltdown" and "Spectre" to our CHI-F cloud environment. We now have a new kernel to apply for all XEN Static deployments. During this maintenance window you may see your virtual machine reboot, but per VM downtime should not exceed more than 20 minutes for a cloud based VM, or 60 minutes for an SSD VPS based VM. Once we have completed this maintenance, or if there are issues during this maintenance, we will update this status page appropriately. Thank you for your patience as we ensure the highest level of security for your virtual environment with VPS.net.
