Information on "Meltdown" and "Spectre" (Update)


With reference to recent press coverage, weaknesses in the hardware architecture of processors have been discovered. These vulnerabilities may potentially be exploited with malware and thus may be used for unwanted access to and even theft of business or private data. Those vulnaribilities are known as "Meltdown" and "Spectre".

However, no cases have been reported so far that indicate the use of these vulnerabilities. In order to keep the risk to a minimum, it is important to have all recent updates for your operating system installed.

At this time we are investigating on this case as to what extend Shuttle products may be affected by vulnerabilities that cannot be patched by software updates alone. Should there be any BIOS updates required, we will provide them as soon as possible and keep you informed on availability.
