Today we have got reports from the clients that all their UTM Edge devices did a reboot early at night, at about 03:00 AM Israel time 31st of October. While no official press-release has been seen so far from the Checkpoint, looking at http://www.cpug.org/forums/check-point-utm-1-edge-appliances/14606-all-edge-firewalls-rebooted-10-30-2010-8-58-p-m.html where people from around the globe report the same I can assume with high degree of certainty that indeed it was the case.
While I do hold the opinion that reboot is always good for the Edge, I didn’t think they meant to act upon it .
I can hope the same doesn’t happen one day to the UTM-1 ….

Update 2 Nov Checkpoint released SecureKnowledge (sk56641) note about that where they say yeah it happened, caused by bug, next time it will happen in 13 years from now when no Edge of this series is supposed to be in use .
Checkpoint note.
