They sent us an email about how there was a vulnerability but that individual VM’s could not be targeted (the memory leak one) but we haven’t heard anything since.

I don’t have a lot of detail to share but I did check in on this issue with our ops team earlier in the week. They have reported that while we are continuing to track this issue internally we do not believe that this issue presents any risk to our users.


I’d submit a ticket to the support team to confirm, though from looking at the Droplets and the info on the CPU’s, it doesn’t look like those solutions are enabled.

At the core, the platform team would need to confirm, or perhaps @ryanpq can do so here.
