Servers.  We all have them!  Scattered away throughout our libraries, servers of all types help keep our libraries accessible and useful for both patrons and staff.  However, as much as any other type of computers, these need to be updated as well. Given the Shellshock* and Heartbleed* vulnerabilities that have been reported in the last few months, it seems to be a never-ending job!
