Update7 months ago

Three very severe vulnerabilities have been disclosed, these affect many Intel, AMD and ARM CPUs made since 1995. This issue affects home computers, phones, tablets and servers. As such, nearly everyone who uses such a device is affected. Our team is working on mitigating this, but we expect to have to reboot every zone shortly in order to protect your data.
<br/><br/>
We are looking to reboot every zone at around midnight, or in the early hours local time over the next few days, we will soon contact you to let you know of the emergency maintenance window we have allocated for your zone.
<br/><br/>
We will keep you updated on this serious issue and give you as much notice for any emergency reboots as we possibly can.
