    IBM Cloud platform maintenance - August 22 - September 08, 2018 - All Public environments

    To address an urgent, industry-wide security advisory, all virtual machines in the world-wide IBM Cloud data centers will be patched over the next several days between August 22 and September 08. Due to the nature of this vulnerability and the components that are affected, we are not able to mitigate this potential vulnerability through hot patching. Cloud host reboots are required.
    The patches/restarts will be staggered to minimize the overall impact to IBM Cloud users.


    For more details on the impact on various functions and IBM Cloud regions, the overall schedule, and any updates during the week, please refer to the maintenance page at https://ibm-cloud.github.io/support/maintenance.html


    Note: This urgent action is necessary to ensure the continued normal operation of the platform and the schedule cannot be adjusted.
