Meltdown Mitigation

The patched jessie kernels have not been released (see this debian page for status info) however... the back ported stretch kernel has been released.

How to upgrade

apt-get update && apt-get install linux-image-amd64/jessie-backports linux-image-4.9.0-0.bpo.5-amd64/jessie-backports linux-base/jessie-backports
shutdown -h

When prompted to restart services, you can say no to all services (since they will all be restarted when you shutdown the guest).

After reboot, check with:

0 chavez:~# uname -a
Linux chavez 4.9.0-0.bpo.5-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.65-3+deb9u2~bpo8+1 (2017-01-05) x86_64 GNU/Linux
0 chavez:~#

Steps

  • released service advisory
  • Upgrade and reboot all MOSH'es
  • Upgrade and reboot all other guests
  • Upgrade and reboot physical servers (wait for Jamie in case a colo trip is needed).

Server List

Here is the server list (in order). Please put your initials after a server that you are working on, then strike-out when it is completed.

Once the service advisory is out, you don't have to wait for confirmation on IRC or any coordination - just start upgrading (provided we are in off hours).
