In the continuing upgrades to the East Kingdom server and services, the web server was restarted to remove a potential security vulnerability.

The restart of the SQL server took longer than expected and the service was impacted until restored.

We do not anticipate any further impact from the restart as all services have been tested as performing normally at this time.

As always, if you have any additional questions; concerns or information regarding the above, or any current events or outages, please do not hesitate to contact the Webministry.

In Service to the Kingdom,

The Webministry
