CPU Vulnerabilities: Meltdown & Spectre

4 January 2018

For details on how Linode is addressing the newly disclosed CPU architecture vulnerabilities, please follow the link below.

The most likely result is that Linode will produce a new kernel and require a reboot all our servers for it to take affect. In that case any impact on websites or related services should be negligible.

For details on patching other platforms and devices see here.

Update: Linode has released a patched kernel which we will be installing on all our servers during the week (requiring a reboot).
