   Security/Software Updates (Linux reboots)

[1]Compute nodes as well as desktop machines WILL BE REBOOTED on Thursday
(June 19th).  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. The machines that have been updated are:

     * pubbox44.cims.nyu.edu
     * pubbox16.cims.nyu.edu
