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

Due to infrastructure maintenance, the ~okeanos-knossos service will be disrupted between 8:00 and 10:00 EET on Monday, December 11.
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,
the ~okeanos-knossos team
