   Security/Software Updates (Linux reboots)

   [1]Compute nodes as well as desktop machines WILL BE REBOOTED on
   Thursday (March 7th).  Rolling updates will be applied to machines
   between 8pm and 12am. In an effort to try and minimize any corrupted
   files or lost work, please save all your data and logout of any linux
   systems before 8pm. Many of the updates have already been made on
   several linux machines in the computer lab located in WWH229. We urge
   people to test any packages that are critical to their work and let us
   know if they encounter any problems before the updates occur. The
   machines that have been updated are:

     * WWH229: pubbox1.cims.nyu.edu
       WWH229: pubbox10.cims.nyu.edu
       WWH229: pubbox16.cims.nyu.edu
