Critical Maintenance for CPU Vulnerabilities (Spectre v1 and v2)

To complete our mitigations against the recent Meltdown & Spectre (v1 and v2) CPU vulnerabilities we must undergo further maintenance on our infrastructure. The following dates and times have been assigned and unfortunately cannot be changed:

* 2018-04-27 8:00:00 PM UTC - uk7.internet-radio.com
* 2018-04-27 8:00:00 PM UTC - www.internet-radio.com
* 2018-04-30 10:00:00 PM UTC - uk1.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-01 10:00:00 PM UTC - uk5.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-01 11:00:00 PM UTC - uk4.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-01 11:00:00 PM UTC - control.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-02 6:00:00 AM UTC - us5.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-02 6:00:00 PM UTC - de1.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-02 8:00:00 PM UTC - uk6.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-02 10:00:00 PM UTC - uk2.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-02 11:00:00 PM UTC - uk3.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-04 12:00:00 AM UTC - us2.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-09 4:00:00 AM UTC - us4.internet-radio.com
* 2018-05-11 3:00:00 AM UTC - us3.internet-radio.com
* us1.internet-radio.com date is still to be confirmed. We'll send a separate email later.

Please take note when your server will be updated. Whilst the control panel (control.internet-radio.com:2199) and website (www.internet-radio.com) are being updated your radio servers will still function but you won't be able to access the control panel or your start pages in our directory.

A two-hour window is allocated, however the actual downtime should be much less. During this time the server will be cleanly shutdown, updated and rebooted. Once the update is complete your radio server will be brought back online automatically and there should be no action required on your part although we recommend you login to check anyway.
