Virtual instances - Los Angeles, DC2 v4XX Nodes (OpenVZ based VPS): BIOS updates - CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754

In order to address recent security vulnerabilities (CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754) we will be applying latest BIOS updates on the following affected node IDs:

Kernel upgrades have been already applied by us back in January, however only now we have received stable BIOS images for these nodes from our server vendor.

We will be gracefully shutting down all VMs, applying the upgrades, and restarting all VMs over the period of 4 hours, beginning from 18:30 PST on March 22, 2018.

Each VM will be unavailable for a period of approximately 20-25 minutes.
