TORONTO, CANADA – ServerMania, a leading provider of cloud hosting and dedicated server hosting, is adopting security measures to protect its customers from the privacy and security risks posed by the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities.

The company has also released an advisory urging dedicated server hosting customers to update server operating systems as soon as possible.


Spectre and Meltdown are critical vulnerabilities that exploit flaws in processors manufactured by Intel, ARM, and AMD. These processors are used in almost every computing device, from servers to smartphones. The vulnerabilities can be exploited by an attacker able to run code on the affected machines, revealing sensitive data by bypassing the processor’s built-in protections.

Microsoft and leading Linux distributions, including CentOS and Ubuntu, have released patches that mitigate the risk. Updating server operating systems to patched versions is the only way to protect server hosting customers and their users.

“The Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities expose the vast majority of servers to the risk of compromise and data theft. It’s a huge problem, but the industry has reacted quickly to develop solutions that mitigate most of the risk,” explained ServerMania CEO, Kevin Blanchard, “At ServerMania, we are working with customers to secure servers across our cloud and hybrid server hosting ranges. Dedicated server hosting customers should update their servers as soon as possible.”

Spectre and Meltdown can be exploited by anyone in a position to run code on a server. They are particularly hazardous for multi-tenant systems like the public cloud, which hosts several users on the same server. A malicious user could theoretically run code in a virtual machine they control and access data from the host environment and other virtual machines hosted on the same server. Spectre and Meltdown present a risk in any scenario that allows unvetted code to be run on a server.

ServerMania offers a variety of infrastructure hosting options, including dedicated servers, hybrid servers, and public and private cloud platforms. The company is proactively patching its cloud and hybrid server platforms and is working with its customers to secure dedicated servers.

About ServerMania
ServerMania is a Canadian company with over 14 years of experience building high-performance infrastructure hosting platforms for businesses globally.

Apple has made changes to revised app store guidelines that threatened to block a wide range of small business apps created with templates, DIY tools, and SMB app platforms.
The guidelines were originally revised earlier this year to ensure a minimum standard of quality and uniqueness for apps accepted to the App Store, and to make sure that they are not simply "wrapped" websites or social media pages. The revisions were also intended to limit spam in the App Store. A number of developers and app-creation companies catering to SMBs and non-profit organizations that had thought they would be unaffected by the changes, however, were recently informed that their apps would be banned as of January 1.
App store review guideline 4.2.6 previously said: "Apps created from a commercialized template or app generation service will be rejected."
The rule has now been amended to read: "Apps created from a commercialized template or app generation service will be rejected unless they are submitted directly by the provider of the app's content. These services should not submit apps on behalf of their clients and should offer tools that let their clients create customized, innovative apps that provide unique customer experiences. Another acceptable option for template providers is to create a single binary to host all client content in an aggregated or "picker" model, for example as a restaurant finder app with separate customized entries or pages for each client restaurant,
