Addressing Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities

Addressing Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities

Alkmaar – January 4

We are currently conducting an inventory and impact assessment of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities for the various (cloud) environments where we are working through
make use of.
For the techies, the following background article from ‘Tweakers’ is very interesting:

As soon as additional information is available we will inform you immediately.


Several actions have since been taken and are still underway to address the
Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities
mitigation. Both at the infrastructure level and individual servers are required by security measures and we have partnered with
taking them.


The infrastructure of our VMware platforms has been undergoing continuous and phased updates since yesterday afternoon. Because of the redundant, high-availability setup, our customers are not inconvenienced by this.


Updates to all individual Web servers will also be provided. However, patches are not already available for all operating systems. Once these become available, they are first carefully tested as their implementation often proves difficult and has several dependencies that need to be mapped out. Once we have sufficiently tested the update, we will start scheduling additional maintenance windows to update the affected servers and communicate this maintenance to our customers.

We will, of course, continue to closely monitor news and current developments.

For questions we are of course available
through the normal channels
