Hi ~okeanos-knossos users,
Early this month, security researchers reported two critical vulnerabilities: Spectre and Meltdown. These vulnerabilities allow attackers to access sensitive information (such as passwords), due to a design flaw, which affects Intel, ARM and some AMD processors. Specifically, Meltdown allows a process to bypass the mechanisms that isolate it from accessing the memory address space of other processes and the operating system. Respectively, with Spectre a process can access arbitrary memory locations of other related processes.
In order to protect the virtual machines, the physical nodes of ~okeanos-knossos have been patched with all the currently available security updates, ... read more
