DFI Update of Intel Security Vulnerabilities Issue

2018/02/06 (UTC-6)

Dear DFI’s Valued Customers,


DFI is aware of the new side-channel analysis vulnerabilities (also known as Meltdown and Spectre), which may allow an attacker to gain unauthorized disclosure of information and obtain sensitive data.

We recommend our customers to adopt OS & BIOS updates for malware protection. DFI will release the updates that address these vulnerabilities and continue to closely work with Intel to investigate and mitigate any potential impact to affected products and will update this article frequently.

For detailed impacted Intel platforms, please visit Facts About Side Channel Analysis And Intel® Products. Regarding developing products, DFI will install the latest OS & BIOS updates in advance before releasing to our customers.

Sincerely,
DFI Inc.
