Dear Valued Clients,

A vulnerability targeting the networking stack in linux servers running kernel 2.6.29 or newer has been discovered that allows for Networking denial-of-service of varying severity, leveraging TCP "Selective Acknowlegment" (SACK).

Due to the ease of exploitation, and the impact of exploitation, we will be patching and rebooting all affected, fully-managed hosts overnight.

You can read more about the exploit (and patches mitigating it), here: and here

Considering the critical nature of this vulnerability, we will have to schedule this maintenance on priority.

Impact of Work:
We will have to update the Kernel. We will have to reboot the VM after the Kernel update. The VM may not be accessible when we reboot the server.
