Event Type: Network Upgrade
Event Type: Network Upgrade
Start Time: 2013-12-04 02:00
End Time: 2013-12-04 02:45
Device(s): br1 stream101.core
Client Affecting: Possible

Event Summary: We have worked with our vendor to isolate the root cause of a brief outage on Monday 2 December, 2013 which impacted some customers. The root cause is a recently discovered memory leak in the current software version of a core router. To resolve this condition, the OS level must be upgraded immediately and will require a router reload. The other core routers are not experiencing the defect but will be scheduled for upgrade shortly in non-emergency maintenance windows.

The purpose of this maintenance window is to apply an OS version upgrade to one of our core routers in the location that you have services with us. This upgrade will require a reload which may impact customer traffic for up to 15 minutes. Our servers are dedicated and multi-homed, so most clients will not notice an issue, but in the event of disruption, we are providing you with this notice.

cPanel Upgrade!

We’ve upgraded cPanel and WHM to the latest version, 11.34.  A full changelog can be found on cPanel’s website found here: http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/1134ReleaseNotes

You will notice some large changes to the server’s backend. The most important changes are outlined below:
Security Improvements:
Security Tokens: Security Tokens are designed to protect cPanel & WHM from a common type of web vulnerability called XSRF. Once enabled, unique tokens will be included in the cPanel & WHM URLs which will completely prevent XSRF attacks.
SMTP Restrictions: This feature prevents users from bypassing the mail server to send mail, a common practice used by spammers. It will allow only the MTA, mailman, and root to connect to remote SMTP servers.
Secure Connections: All cPanel/WHM connections are now 100% secured via SSL. This ensures your data is secure.
Feature Improvements:
 
Email Archiving: Email Archiving allows you to store a copy of each message this server sends or receives. This feature provides a cPanel interface that allows users to control the archive type and retention period on a per domain basis.
