Spectre & Meltdown CPU patches


Over the coming week Camayak will need to schedule short (up to¬†one/two hours, but usually taking approximately 30 minutes) downtime windows with approximately 24 hours’ notice. This is in accordance¬†with our hosting provider’s Meltdown CPU exploit vulnerability patches.

We apologize for the short notice but due to the nature of the exploit downtime must be scheduled as soon as possible. Please see this blog post for a useful non-technical explanation of the two bugs and why the patches are necessary. Camayak may be accessible more quickly than we anticipate, so keep an eye on our Twitter account for updates on when you can resume your work.
