Emergency kernel update for OpenVZ machines

Hello,
A few days ago, Google Project Zero has disclosed vulnerabilities regarding Intel and AMD processors.
https://googleprojectzero.blogspot.com/2018/01/reading-privileged-memory-with-side.html

As a result, OpenVZ has released kernel upgrades to solve these issues:

Please consider upgrading your kernels since my server has:
2.6.32-042stab125.3

 which is outdated and not protected.

  • Hey ncodex,

    currently our used version of kernel for OpenVZ is 2.6.32-042stab125.3. However, we are now testing the new version 2.6.32-042stab127.2 regarding the widely spread issue of Meltdown and Spectre. Given the factor, how fast this patch was released in order to resolve an issue, we have to test it first to make sure it will not cause any other issues unrelated to Meltdown and Spectre.

    Once we tested the new kernel version for OpenVZ, we will be updating our servers as soon as possible.
