> Dear All,
> I am advised to reboot all our CREST servers to fully apply the updated OpenSSL library. The new OpenSSL library was patched to RHEL 6 (RedHat Enterprise Linux 6) packages yesterday and they were installed on all the CREST server machines at around 10am Apr 8, 2014. (Note: all the CREST server machines are setup with RHEL6).
> The OpenSSL bug is serious and we needed to take immediate actions.
> Even though our server seem to be safe with the new OpenSSL library now, I would like to make sure that there is no any leaking spots in our server machines by refreshing all the systems with the new OpenSSL library.
> I would like to setup a schedule to reboot all the CREST server machines at 9am tomorrow (Apr 10, 2014).

> Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about rebooting our servers.
