Summary: all cloud servers will be restarted this weekend after 10pm eastern.

We are preparing to do restarts of all levels to address MBS / zombieload

Due to the nature of the exploit there are fixes required in the cpu/bios, physical server kernel, qemu, and the cloud servers kernel.

We are still waiting on Dell for the cpu/bios update. However we do have everything in place to do the work on the cloud servers restarts.

These restarts may take up to 15 minutes.

I am going to delay this work as there are additional items we want to accomplish that may require a reboot and we want to bring them all in at the same time to limit the amount of reboots we do.
