Intel have released a large set of firmware upgrades (updates) for most processors less than five years old, but unfortunately these were found to be very unstable and were causing a lot of servers to crash, so they have been pulled away again!
Microsoft have even gone to the lengths of releasing a series of off schedule updates to reverse previous changes.
Fusion are continuing to review the updates on a daily basis, and we stand by our previous decision of waiting for the best combination of reliability, protection and minimal impact.
We have also recently attended a security course from our partner Sophos where we have learnt about potential ways of blocking these sorts of vulnerabilities with hardware firewalls. We will be analysing this further, to see if it would be viable for any of our clients.
We will continue to write to you in the next coming weeks and inform you of any updates or changes….in the meantime if you have any questions give us a call on 03332414123 or email [email protected].
