Potential Security Impact: Local: Disclosure of Information, Elevation of
Privilege

VULNERABILITY SUMMARY

On January 3 2018, side-channel security vulnerabilities involving speculative
execution were publicly disclosed. These vulnerabilities may impact the listed
HPE products, potentially leading to information disclosure and elevation of
privilege. Mitigation and resolution of these vulnerabilities may call for both
an operating system update, provided by the OS vendor, and a system ROM update
from HPE.

Note:

  o This issue takes advantage of techniques commonly used in many modern
    processor architectures.
  o For further information, microprocessor vendors have provided security
    advisories:

RESOLUTION

On January 11, Intel announced issues with an increased frequency of reboots
when using the microcodes they released to address Variant 2 of the Spectre
Vulnerability for numerous processors including Broadwell, Haswell, Skylake,
Kaby Lake, Ivybridge, and Sandybridge processors. Intel has now identified the
root cause of these issues and determined that these microcodes may introduce
reboots and other unpredictable system behavior. Due to the severity of the
potential issues that may occur when using these microcodes, Intel is now
recommending that customers discontinue their use. Additional information is
available from Intel's Security Exploit Newsroom here: https://
newsroom.intel.com/press-kits/security-exploits-intel-products/ Non-HPE site .
HPE is in alignment with Intel in our recommendation that customers discontinue
use of System ROMs including impacted microcodes and revert to earlier System
ROM versions.

All System ROMs including impacted microcodes have been removed from the HPE
Support Site. This impacts HPE ProLiant and Synergy Gen10, Gen9, and Gen8 v2
servers as well as HPE Superdome servers for which updated System ROMs had
previously been made available. Intel is working on updated microcodes to
address these issues, and HPE will validate updated System ROMs including these
microcodes and make them available to our customers in the coming weeks.

Mitigations for Variant 1 (Spectre) and Variant 3 (Meltdown) vulnerabilities
require only OS updates and are not impacted.

  o HPE has provided a customer bulletin https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/
    public/display-docId=emr_na-a00039267en_us with specific instructions to
    obtain the udpated sytem ROM

  o Note:

      - CVE-2017-5715 (Variant 2) requires that the System ROM be updated and a
        vendor supplied operating system update be applied as well.
      - For CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754 (Variants 1 and 3) require only
        updates of a vendor supplied operating system.
      - HPE will continue to add additional products to the list.
