   Security/Software Updates (Linux reboots)

   Compute nodes and desktop machines WILL BE REBOOTED on Thursday
   (September 29th).  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. 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 following machines have the updates:

   pubbox40.cims.nyu.edu (CentOS 7)
