Atlantic.Net Cloud Hosting: FreeBSD 11 Now Available!

Atlantic.Net is always working to provide our customers with the latest and greatest! We are happy to announce that FreeBSD 11 is now available to provision in our Cloud Hosting Portal.

If you have not already signed up, please sign up for a Cloud Hosting account here, and spin up a server in less than 30 seconds.

Two-Step Login is Now Available!

We are excited to announce the release of a new feature called Two-Step Login (aka: Two-Factor Authentication, 2TFA, TFA). This new feature provides you an extra layer of security when accessing your Cloud account via the Atlantic.Net Cloud Portal.

What is Two-Step Login?

When you enable Two-Step Login, you’ll be required to provide a username and password like you normally do plus a randomly generated verification code.

You’ll be able to get the verification code by text message or by using a simple authenticator app for a smartphone.

How it helps protect your account

Most services only have one layer of security to protect user accounts: a password. With Two-Step Login, even if a bad guy hacks your password, he’ll still need your phone to get into your account.

Update on VENOM (CVE-2015-3456) QEMU Vulnerability

Earlier today, a security vulnerability, CVE-2015-3456 (VENOM), was publicly announced. This vulnerability affects the widely used KVM/QEMU virtualization hypervisor platform that we use to power our SSD cloud hosting servers.

We are rolling out the necessary security patches to address this vulnerability to all applicable infrastructure. In order to ensure that the patches are effective at resolving the vulnerability, you may see a very brief interruption in service (a few seconds) while your Cloud Server is switched to run on the updated version of our infrastructure.

A very small percentage of Cloud Servers may require a reboot to complete this process. If this is necessary for one of your cloud hosting servers, you will be contacted by our support team so this can be done with as little inconvenience as possible.

We will keep you posted on progress.

 

UPDATE 05/14/15: Atlantic.Net has successfully mitigated the VENOM vulnerability in our USA-West-1 (San Francisco), USA-Central-1 (Dallas), USA-East-2 (New York) and Canada-East-1 (Toronto) Cloud locations.  USA-East-1 (Orlando) is almost complete, however, there is a small percentage of Cloud Servers that will need to be manually rebooted.  If you are one of the few affected, an email will be sent to you shortly with further instructions.

UPDATE 05/14/15: Atlantic.Net sent notification to the small percentage of cloud server hosting that needed to be manually rebooted in USA-East-1 (Orlando).  Those that were notified have until 11:59 pm ET on May 15, 2015 to power cycle their Cloud Servers per the instructions provided in the email. If they have not done so by the previously mentioned time, we will shutdown their Cloud Servers and power them back on.

UPDATE 05/16/15: Atlantic.Net has now successfully mitigated the VENOM vulnerability in USA-East-1 (Orlando), and as previously noted, all other Cloud locations.

You can read more about VENOM here.

If you have any further questions, please contact our Support team.
