Dirty COW Linux Kernel Vulnerability Fixed
Recently, a very serious vulnerability in the Linux kernel, the so called Dirty COW, was reported. It allows attackers to gain root access to servers and take control over the whole system. We protected our customers on all types of accounts by patching the vulnerability and updating our servers without reboot and downtime for all users on our Linux Container platform.
