Information for all StableNet® Customers and Partners regarding Spectre & Meltdown

Updates regarding security gaps

Würzburg/Austin/Singapore, January 12th, 2018

In recent days, there have been many announcements worldwide regarding important security gaps called Spectre and Meltdown. Respective to these security vulnerabilities we would like to inform all our customers and partners as to which StableNet® components are affected.

StableNet® itself as software is not affected. Also our SNEA devices are not affected. We use the Banana Pi series which is based on the ARM Cortex-A7. This ARM processor series is not affected.

Updates required

All StableNet® appliances require an update of the underlying Linux OS (e.g. CentOS 7) to close the security vulnerability. In most cases, a BIOS update also has to be installed.

These updates are in the operations system or the BIOS respectively and thus are not part of StableNet®. They are not covered in the StableNet® maintenance contract.

If you have a specific contract that includes maintenance for your StableNet® appliances, please contact our support team to discuss further steps.
