    UPGRADING ~OKEANOS-GLOBAL, TAKE A SNEAK PEEK!

    Hello ~okeanos-global users,

    We are happy to announce that on Wednesday, September 21 2016 between 09:00 and 11:00 EET we will be doing a major upgrade to the ~okeanos-global service, with a new version of the Synnefo software.

    During the upgrade Astakos, Cyclades and Pithos+ Web UIs and their APIs will be unavailable. Your VMs and Pithos+ files should remain unaffected.

    After the upgrade, you will be able to enjoy more robust services with several improvements and additions across ~okeanos-global, as well as some pithos+ performance enhancements.

    Enjoy,
    the ~okeanos-global team

    CRITICAL GLIBC VULNERABILITY - RESTART OF VIRTUAL MACHINES

    Hi ~okeanos-global users,

    A new critical vulnerability in glibc has recently been discovered. This security issue is a stack-based buffer overflow problem, which can be exploited by malicious users to execute code remotely. This affects all Linux systems.

    Because of this, we strongly advise you to update immediately the glibc packages in your operating system and restart your virtual machines immediately after the updates.

    In order to update Debian and Debian derivative systems you may execute:

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade


    and for CentOS/RHEL:

    yum update

    Take care,
    the ~okeanos-global ... read more
