Xen security updates

8 March 2015 12:27:53 +0000

Some of our servers use a technology called Xen. Like all software, it is subject to the discovery of bugs and security vulnerabilities.

Over the last week, all of our servers that use Xen have undergone “patching” to address some newly-discovered — but not yet publicised — security vulnerabilities. This patching required servers to be rebooted, and finished this morning.

We thank you for your patience this week during these upgrades.
