Emergency upgrade of Nexus system


Andrew Grimberg
 

We just received word that both Nexus 2 and Nexus 3 are vulnerable to a
security issue that was just announced with possible attacks already in
the wild.

Given the nature of the security issue we will be performing emergency
upgrades on the single Nexus system that FD.io has in play. I have
already placed both Jenkins systems into shutdown mode to stop new jobs
from starting.

Given the length of the jobs already running and their ETA for
completion. We will be running the upgrade in while the jobs are in
progress. If you see a failure in your job due to this forced upgrade we
apologize but due to the nature of this we must get this update rolled out.
