A follow-up maintenance in a week or two is impending, since the situation is still developing.

The maintenance is being done to mitigate two recently disclosed security threats, CVE-2017-5754 (nicknamed "Meltdown") and CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715 (nicknamed "Spectre") that affect most modern processor architectures.
These are not remotely exploitable bugs, however if a web host is already compromised by other means, or there is a rouge customer sharing the same server, access could be misused to extract private information such as SSL/TLS keys, login/passwords, session id's and the like. While this is a high severity flaw, we consider the risk of this happening to be low. For customers with dedicated servers this is less of a concern.
