Dear LeaseWeb customer,

Leaseweb is aware of and currently tracking the recently disclosed “speculative execution” vulnerabilities, Spectre and Meltdown, that are present on most modern computer processors. 

We support customer solutions across numerous platforms that leverage a variety of types of hardware. We are currently assessing all of our infrastructure and customer-related environments and will take all necessary actions to mitigate these vulnerabilities at the earliest opportunity. 

If you manage your own operating system, we suggest that you check your patch levels and upgrade if needed. Please be aware that the patch will require a reboot to be implemented.

Sincerely, LeaseWeb Data center naming system is explained here:
