Hosting Server Reboots Tonight

Many of you have heard of the two major security flaws found in CPUs recently (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/03/business/computer-flaws.html) and our hosting platform is just as affected as everything else out there.  To aid Amazon in applying some patches to help mitigate this issue, we must reboot all our hosting servers this evening.  This is hoped to take place around 8PM EDT.  Because of the publication of the information related to these vulnerabilities, it is critical that take this action immediately, rather than waiting for a date in the future to have scheduled maintenance.  We do expect the outage to be measure in single-digit minutes, but simply can’t know for sure, as things go wrong in these operations.  You can follow us on Twitter for updates: @nerdshosting.
