CenturyLink Completes Patches for Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities
CenturyLink Cloud completed the implementation of all available patches on January 13. We are continuing to work with hardware and software vendors on the release of new patches to be tested and applied as they are released. You can follow the progress more closely and subscribe to updates on our status site, status.ctl.io.
Also, please note that while CenturyLink is patching our environment, we want to remind our customers that they are responsible for updating the operating system for their cloud virtual and bare metal servers. We recommend that you check with your operating system vendor(s) and system manufacturer(s) and apply any updates as soon as they are available. Below are many useful resources about the issue.
