Re: DL360 Gen9 firmware update for meltdown/spectre?

It alwas takes a few days until a published version appears on the web pages. The Gen9 and Gen10 updates are obviously already available.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: DL360 Gen9 firmware update for meltdown/spectre?

Re: DL360 Gen9 firmware update for meltdown/spectre?

Seems a bit wrong for a security vulnerability to announce it as available then have a process where it takes days for it to be available to download from the support website. If its critical as described by HP in the bulletin it should be available as soon as possible

From https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-a00039267en_us

"For ProLiant Gen8 series servers, update to a System ROM version dated 12/12/2017."

Is there a direct link available to be able to download this BIOS ?

Did they pull the 2.54 BIOS?  I can get to the page but there is no download button?

Thanks,

Yep apparently Intel changed some microcode

Currently they are saying roll back to 2.52 if you did put 2.54 on

At this moment it might be good to wait as we might be releasing very soon a new ROMBIOS fix: http://h22208.www2.hpe.com/eginfolib/securityalerts/SCAM/Side_Channel_Analysis_Method.html

Thanks for the update, so still waiting for the new BIOS,

RedHat by the way have RHSA's available now for RHEL 6 and 7, the ones for the Extended Life Cycle Support for RHEL5 are still pending

https://access.redhat.com/security/vulnerabilities/speculativeexecution

Our products are RHEL appliances on DL360 platforms, we span from G5 to Gen9 on the hardware (mostly 8 &9) and RHEL5 and RHEL6 for the OS, hence our interest in resolving this
