The Xen bug and how Rackspace responded to it

Andy Hill, Systems/Network Engineer at Rackspace in Lexington, will talk about the operational side of responding to XSA-108[See #1 below], the Xen security advisory which caused major cloud providers to reboot lots of servers[2}[3].

It'll be instructive to get this inside perspective on a significant security event.

There will probably be time for the discussion to morph to other  other related issues, so come with your questions and/or topics.
