[Identified] As part of a chrome update this weekend people may be experiencing issues with the portal when using a chrome browser. This is down to an update released for Chrome at the weekend that upgraded the embedded version of flash that is no longer compatible. There is currently no fix for this though there are workarounds published involving modifying the version of flash used. Our recommendation is to use a different supported browser, or if accessible to your environment the N4Cloud Portal which is not affected by this issue

[Identified] As there is a workaround in place by not using Chrome the status is being changed to Operational but the incident will remain open for further updates

[Identified] The portal itself is fully functional, however, the latest update to Flash Player is now also starting to impact other browsers.
This has been identified as a bug to Adobe and they are working on a general release to fix the issue. As a workaround you can download the latest Flash Player 27 beta.
Further information around the workaround can be found in the following VMware KB article
Details on the known issue and the beta fixing it can be found in the adobe 27 Beta release notes
As reported globally in the last 24 hours a vulnerability has been identified in a high number of Intel Processes resulting in 3 CVEs being identified.
Node4 have been issued patches for their cloud hyper-visor environments and are proceeding to patch all of their hosts in the shared cloud environment starting later today.
Updates will be provided as each cloud environment is successfully completed, there should be no impact as the cloud is fully resilient but there will be a higher than usual number of vmotions during the next few days as hosts are taken out of production for the patches to be applied
