bolt security update

We upgraded the kernel running on ‘bolt’ (our customer shell server) today to address a potential security issue.
This required a reboot of the system. The system is backup and running smoothly.

    So Bolt’s uptime before this kernel security fix was almost a year, right?

    Here’s my latest uptime record for Bolt:

    $ uptime;uname -a;ps u1
    16:07:37 up 273 days, 10:39, 38 users, load average: 0.52, 0.52, 0.45
    Linux bolt.sonic.net 2.4.32-A-STAND #1 SMP Thu Mar 2 13:55:33 PST 2006 i686 unknown
    USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND
    root 1 0.0 0.0 1308 432 ? S 2008 10:02 init [3]
    $
    $ ls -ld uptime
    -rw-r–r– 1 me user 333 Jun 28 16:08 uptime

    So, on August 28th, that would have been 61 days later, but since it was on the 17th, that’s 50 days later. 273+50=323. 323 days uptime, right?

    I see you rebooted it again last night a bunch of times. Some adjustments are sometimes necessary, I know.
