Scheduled Server Maintenance [5/1/2018]
Posted by LankaHost NOC on 26 April 2018 03:26 AM

Scheduled Server Maintenance [5/1/2018]

Maintenance Type:
Firmware Maintenance

Action to be taken:
In an effort to ensure that our clients are receiving the best possible service moving forward, we will be performing a proactive firmware upgrade on one of our core routers in the Orlando data center.

Maintenance Window:
Start - 5/1/2018 @ 2:00 AM EDT ( 11:30 A.M Local Time )
End - 5/1/2018 @ 4:00 AM EDT  ( 1:30 P.M Local Time )

Datacenter Location:
USA.Orlando DC2

All the Shared Hosting Servers

Estimated Downtime:
We understand the importance of minimizing downtime while performing maintenance and for this reason we will do everything we can in hopes that we can expedite the process. Due to the redundancy of our setup most clients will only experience minor packet loss in up to 3 intervals of 5 minutes while the router is rebooted and then brought in/out of ICCP/MC-LAG with its other core member. No significant disruption or downtime of any kind is expected during this event, only re-routing and brief losses during global BGP re-convergence.

We do apologize for any inconvenience and ask that you please plan accordingly.

 Drupal one of the most popular open source content management system has affected by highly critical vulnerability.


Content management system Drupal just released a statement confirming a “highly critical” vulnerability found in versions 6, 7 and 8. According to an analysis by Sitelock, only 18% of Drupal websites are on the latest update, so there’s over one million vulnerable sites in need of the new security patch.

The vulnerability allows an attacker to take control of an affected site just by visiting it; attackers can then modify or delete the affected websites’ data. They would also have access to non-public data. Luckily the good news is, to Drupal’s knowledge, the issue is not currently being exploited.

Our datacenter techs are putting up a firewall block within the next few hours, but in the meantime, please update your Drupal to the latest version. Here’s the instructions per version:

If you are running 8.3.x, upgrade to Drupal 8.3.9 or apply this patch.

If you are running 8.4.x, upgrade to Drupal 8.4.6 or apply this patch.

This issue also affects Drupal 8.2.x and earlier, which are no longer supported. If you are running any of these versions of Drupal 8, update to a more recent release and then follow the instructions above.

This issue also affects Drupal 6. Drupal 6 reached End of Life in February 2016.
