Emergency Maintenance on Apollo Hosting Server

A major security flaw has been discovered in critical vendor-supplied software that helps power our  servers' infrastructure. Emergency maintenance was done to patch the server (the kernel was upgraded), which required a server reboot and resulted in 3-10 minutes of downtime.

We apologize for this disruption in service, even I wasn't notified ahead of time, but in the interest of security it was necessary. Services are coming back up now as I write this. Thank you for your patience.
