Spectre and Meltdown

Hello all,

as you might already know we are currently facing one of the biggest security issues of modern computer history.

Unfortunately, our products are also sadly affected due to the fact that we bundle the OS into our appliances.

We will keep you informed via this thread about the current state of the issue:

Currently, we are waiting for the OS security patches to become available. We expect them (like the rest of the world) on 09.01.2018.

As the patches will have an significant impact on how the OS manages the CPU, it could also have an impact on our realtime and container services. Therefore it is likely that we will have to do a lot of integration tests after the patches have become available.

More information will follow as soon as it is available.
