All servers patched against meltdown and spectre

We have been monitoring the situation carefully since news first broke about the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities, that affect the vast majority of modern computer systems and could potentially lead to breach of information security. We have been on standby to install patches as soon as they became available for our architecture, and all ASIMUT servers are now patched (Saturday January 6). While the vulnerability is present on the ASIMUT servers (now patched), we are not aware that there is any known technique for exploiting it to compromise the kind of servers we operate, without internal infrastructure access. We thus have no reason to suspect that the vulnerabilities have led to information security breach on any ASIMUT servers. We apologise for the unannounced brief (1-2 minutes) service interruptions that customers may have experienced due to emergency patching and restarting servers.

Welcome our new staff member: Veronika

ASIMUT is proud to welcome our newest employee – Veronika Poulsen – to the team.

Veronika handles Customer Relations for our French clients, and speaks fluent French, German and English, which also allows her to support clients from German and English speaking countries. Veronika has in fact been part of the ASIMUT team since May, so you may have already met her. Veronika also assists the Marketing Department with ongoing projects for the organization.

Outside the office, Vero is a member of different gospel choirs, performing in Denmark and Germany, as well as singing with a few bands as requested.

Join us in welcoming Veronika to the team!

Welcome Melbourne!

The ASIMUT team is very happy and proud to welcome our first Australian client!

The Faculty of Victorian College of the Arts and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (Faculty of VCA and MCM) is a faculty of the University of Melbourne, Australia. The VCA-MCM is located near the Melbourne City Centre on two campuses, but will soon move together on the same campus, when the new Ian Potter Southbank Centre building is ready to be the new home for Melbourne Conservatorium of Music from 2019.

The VCA covers courses and training in six academic disciplines: Dance, Film and Television, Music Theatre, Production, Theatre and Visual Art. The MCM is specialised in Music Performance, Composition, Musicology, and more. Both campuses offer graduate programs including certificates and diplomas, and research and coursework awards at the masters and doctoral levels.

To celebrate our new family member, we of course followed our tradition of enjoying a lovely cake – this time with a hint of Down-Under flavor.

 

The cake was made of white chocolate buns with Belgian chocolate, chocolate mousse with 67% Madagascar Chocolate and Passionfromage.

Welcome, Zuyd – Faculty of Arts!
