    Due to infrastructure maintenance and security upgrades, the ~okeanos service will be disrupted between 18:00 and 20:00 EET on Wednesday, March 16.

    Any running virtual machines will be temporarily shut down during maintenance and automatically restarted afterwards.

    Keep in mind that you should restart any running services that won't start automatically after a reboot.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience,

    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
