    CRITICAL GLIBC VULNERABILITY - RESTART OF VIRTUAL MACHINES

    Hi ~okeanos users,

    A new critical vulnerability in glibc has recently been discovered. This security issue is a stack-based buffer overflow problem, which can be exploited by malicious users to execute code remotely. This affects all Linux systems.

    Because of this, we strongly advise you to update immediately the glibc packages in your operating system and restart your virtual machines immediately after the updates.

    In order to update Debian and Debian derivative systems you may execute:

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade


    and for CentOS/RHEL:

    yum update

    Take care,
    the ~okeanos ... read more

    SCHEDULED NETWORK MAINTENANCE

    We'd like to inform you about scheduled network maintenance in our Datacenter between 16:00-18:00 EEST on Friday, Jan 22 2016.

    Your VMs and Pithos+ files should remain unaffected. The maintenance is expected to cause minor disruptions to the ~okeanos service, with transient loss of connectivity to the VMs, Cyclades and Pithos+ Web UIs and their APIs.
    We cannot e xclude longer periods of connectivity loss within this window, but we will strive to keep them to a minimum.

    Thanks for your understanding,
    the ~okeanos team
