We are currently experiencing a network outage that is effecting a small portion of our clients. We are currently working to understand the cause and will update as soon as we know more.
This is currently only effecting a small portion of our users.
Microsoft released new Windows updates today. Looking at the list of updates this month there are none remotely exploitable externally (from outside the VPS) with the default configuration of our VPS. Nevertheless, there are some important updates to protect against local vulnerabilities including the usual cumulative update for Internet Explorer and Edge web browsers.
You can update your VPS by going to “Control Panel > Windows Update”. We recommend updating over weekends only and rebooting after.
The SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC) has the best quick overview of the updates each month. https://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/October+2015+Microsoft+Patch+Tuesday/20245/
