Vertiv Security Updates for CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754, CVE-2018-3639, CVE-2018-3640

Security Bulletin: 
Processor Speculative Execution Vulnerabilities (aka Spectre and Meltdown) in Vertiv products

Updated: 23-May 2018

Summary

The Vertiv security team is actively engaged with security research community to monitor for specific threats, partner with vendors for potential solutions, and mitigate the potential impact of security vulnerabilities to our customers and products. Over the past week, there has been significant press on two hardware based vulnerabilities that affect a large portion of modern processors, including those from Intel, AMD, and ARM-based suppliers. The root of the vulnerability is that modern processors employ speculative execution features to increase overall CPU performance.  Researchers have discovered a flaw in these mechanisms that can allow unauthorized access to the CPU data cache and leak the resulting information contained within. As with any potential security issue, we are actively working through the impact of these vulnerabilities and will be updating products that are susceptible.

Please use the following links for additional technical information on the specific threats:

Below is our current assessment and status. We will be actively updating this information as we have more information.
