Umbra Hosting will be attending HostingCon 2013 in Austin, Texas from June 17 through the 19th. Umbra Hoting would like to extend an invitation to any customers or partners that will be attending HostingCon to contact our sales team to schedule a meeting while in Austin. Our engineers and management always enjoy hearing from our customers and partners while eating a good steak or having a nice cold Texas sized beverage. The best part is that Umbra Hosting (well actually our parent company CyberLynk) will cover the tab so feel free to bring a friend or two.
A vulnerability has recently been disclosed in the Linux kernel which affects all systems running CentOS 6. This vulnerability is serious and may allow a remote exploit or local user to cause privilege escalation, resulting in root access to your server. A working example of the exploit has already been publicly disclosed, thus no advanced knowledge of the Linux kernel is required to gain root access once shell access has been obtained on the target system.
Overall uptime for the month of April 2013 was 99.995%. 21 of 25 servers had 100% uptime. We had a hardware issue with jonah, but it was quickly resolved.
