Potential Security Impact: Local: Disclosure of Information

Source: Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HPE Product Security Response Team

VULNERABILITY SUMMARY

Security vulnerabilities involving speculative execution in microprocessors from Intel and AMD used in HPE ProLiant and HPE Synergy servers could allow the local disclosure of information.

Resolution of these vulnerabilities requires operating system updates provided by the operating system vendor, software updates, and system ROM updates from HPE.

There are two vulnerabilities:

Variant 4, Speculative Store Bypass, (CVE-2018-3639) affects Intel and AMD processor-based systems and requires updated microcode (delivered as part of the BIOS), operating system updates, and software updates.

Variant 3A, Rogue Register Load, (CVE-2018-3640) affects Intel processors only and requires a System ROM update.

RESOLUTION

HPE has provided the following information to resolve these vulnerabilities in certain Intel and AMD-based processor systems:

Resolution of these vulnerabilities requires operating system updates provided by the operating system vendor, software updates, and system ROM updates from HPE.

There are two vulnerabilities:

Variant 4, CVE-2018-3639, affects Intel and AMD processor-based systems and requires updated microcode (delivered as part of the BIOS), operating systems updates, and software updates.

Variant 3A, CVE-2018-3640, affects Intel processors only and only requires a System ROM update.

A System ROM report will be available on the HPE Product Security Vulnerability Alerts web page for the Speculative Store Bypass vulnerabilities. This download report provides direct links to the System ROMs and patches that HPE has released for ProLiant, Synergy, Moonshot, and Cloudline products.

Refer to the Impacted Product Version section for a list of System ROM revisions that include updated microcode for all ProLiant architectures.
