Patches for a critical CPU/kernel vulnerability have arrived for our Linux systems. These need to be done as soon as possible so we are planning on starting at 7pm tonight (May 14th, 2019). It will affect:
CS Linux Lab systems
FAB 55-17 MCECS Lab Linux systems
File servers and other systems will not be affected by this work.
We expect the downtimes to be short unless we run into firmware update issues during patching.
