Most of the bufferbloat.net servers are on linode. They are planning a
fleet-wide reboot:


'Course this doesn't help as much as you'd like if one or more of your
servers is already compromised, and had keys or shared passwords. So -
sigh - theoretically I'm on vacation - I'm planning on revoking those
keys, and rebuilding others from scratch.

I might, like other big providers do, end up building my own cloudy
kernels again.

There's only one server I seriously care about the security of in the
cloud, the vpn server. Maybe it's time to truly decentralize the vpn
this time around. I think of how exposed others must be, and shudder.

"If your provider does not have a fix then now is a good time to
practice that recovery plan you should have for what to do when your
cloud provider goes down....." - Alan Cox
