CVE ID: CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754

Dell is aware of the side-channel analysis vulnerabilities, known as Meltdown and Spectre, affecting many modern microprocessors that were publicly described by a team of security researchers on January 3, 2018. No "real-world" exploits of these vulnerabilities have been reported to date, though researchers have produced proof-of-concepts.

Patch Guidance

SLN308587_en_US__1icon

Update 10/11/2019:

There are three essential components that need to be applied to mitigate the above-mentioned vulnerabilities:

  1. Apply the processor microcode update via BIOS update listed in the Dell Products Affected section below.
  2. Apply the applicable operating system patch. See the OS Patch Guidance section below.
  3. For applicable systems, apply the NVIDIA driver package listed in the Dell Client Products with NVIDIA GPU section below. For platforms that include the GeForce Experience (GFE) software, the driver package will also include the mitigated version of GFE.

The Operating System patches provide mitigation to Spectre (Variant 1) and Meltdown (Variant 3). The NVIDIA driver update provides mitigation for Spectre (Variant 1). The microcode update is only required for Spectre (Variant 2), CVE-2017-5715.

Dell will update this article with information as it becomes available, including impacted products and remediation steps.

Dell recommends customers follow security best practices for malware protection, in general, to protect against possible exploitation of these vulnerabilities. These practices include promptly adopting software updates, avoiding unrecognized hyperlinks and websites, not downloading files or applications from unknown sources and following secure password protocols. Customers should also use security software to help protect against malware (advanced threat prevention software or anti-virus).

SLN308587_en_US__1icon Note:
  • ThinOS versions 8.4 and later are not affected.
    ThinOS, by design, is a "closed" OS, i.e., only Dell supplied software can run on ThinOS. There is no web browser or other interface to browse, download or install software on ThinOS. In version 8.4, ThinOS introduced digital signature verification of software updates or packages. Thus, users (including Administrators) cannot download or install other software on ThinOS, including malware that could exploit the vulnerabilities in the underlying CPU. Customers should update their devices to the latest version of ThinOS. Dell will continue to monitor the situation.

Resolution

You will need to do the following:

  1. Browse to the Dell Support website.
  2. You are given three options to identify your computer.

    • Touch or click the listing for your computer under THIS PC.
      SLN308587_en_US__7icon Note: When there is no listing for your computer under THIS PC, you can touch or click Download & Install SupportAssist, which will automatically identify your computer for you. Follow the prompts to download and install SupportAssist.
    • Enter the Service Tag, Dell EMC Product ID, or Model, and then touch or click the Search button, and select your computer from the list.
    • Touch or click Browse all products: You must select the type of device you have, the brand name, and then the product model.
      SLN308587_en_US__7icon Note: For more information refer to Dell Knowledge Base article, How to Determine the Model Number of Your Dell Computer or the video below.
