We are reaching out to notify that Microsoft is carrying out immediate maintenance to Azure Virtual Machines to address the public disclosure of a hardware vulnerability with CPUs.

What does this mean and what is the impact?
Affected Azure Virtual Machines will be restarted.

When did this maintenance begin?
This maintenance began at approximately 7AM Melbourne/Sydney time 4th of January 2018.

Please note this maintenance is necessary due to a security update that Intel recently released and needs to be applied to any servers using an Intel processor.
