We are going to be rebooting numerous servers over the next few nights from 10pm onwards to apply emergency kernel updates.
This is to mitigate against the vulnerabilities found in Intel CPU's known as Meltdown and Spectre which are currently mainstream news.
As we have so many shared, physical servers and VPSs, we can't publish an accurate timetable of when each server will be rebooted, but downtime should be under 5 minutes. Please bear with us whilst we work through this unprecedented situation.
