All servers patched against meltdown and spectre

2018-11-22T16:34:52+00:007th January 2018|Hosting and security, Info & Company news|

We have been monitoring the situation carefully since news first broke about the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities, that affect the vast majority of modern computer systems and could potentially lead to breach of information security.

We have been on standby to install patches as soon as they became available for our architecture, and all ASIMUT servers are now patched (Saturday January 6).

While the vulnerability is present on the ASIMUT servers (now patched), we are not aware that there is any known technique for exploiting it to compromise the kind of servers we operate, without internal infrastructure access. We thus have no reason to suspect that the vulnerabilities have led to information security breach on any ASIMUT servers.

We apologise for the unannounced brief (1-2 minutes) service interruptions that customers may have experienced due to emergency patching and restarting servers.
