   Security/Software Updates (Linux reboots)

   Compute nodes and desktop machines WILL BE REBOOTED on Thursday
   (December 18th).  Updates will be applied to machines between 7:00pm
   and midnight. 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 7:00pm. Many of the updates have already been made on several
   Linux machines in the computer lab located in WWH 229. 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.

   These machines have received the kernel update and all of the software
   updates:

   pubbox27.cims.nyu.edu
   pubbox40.cims.nyu.edu
   pubbox41.cims.nyu.edu
   pubbox49.cims.nyu.edu
   pubbox52.cims.nyu.edu
   pubbox53.cims.nyu.edu

   Some significant software updates include (but are not limited to):

   Linux kernel (automatic reboot)
   xorg
