Meltdown and Spectre

Do we expect a reboot soon of our VPS's to apply current patches to mitigate these issues?
Just wondering if there was a timeline.

    Hello,

    we are tracking all news related to the issue. The vulnerability is mostly theoretical, so at the moment we are waiting for possible kernel patches. When any updates will be planed of the issue, we will inform in our status page:

  • I thought Spectre was mostly theoretical, but Meltdown has a working proof of concept?
  • Hey simpz,

    Both methods are theoretical, the issue is exposed in general. However the concept of using any of these are very hard and not many could do that in general, due to required knowledge of the things.

    However, we ourselves can not do much since now the responsibility of releasing a kernel update is on the manufacturers. So we, like every other person, are kindly waiting for fixes.

    Hey,

    I would like to update information that kernel was updated few weeks ago in order to solve the security issues. More information can be found on our status update page:
