How To Protect Your Servers From Spectre and Meltdown Vulnerabilities

Applies to

  • All Cablecast Servers

Answer

Make sure your server is fully up to date with Windows updates by following the instructions here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027667/windows-update-windows-10

Additional micro code will be required from the manufacturer of the server's motherboard in order to fully protect against Spectre and Meltdown. Tightrope media systems is currently waiting for the release of updated system BIOSs. Once these updates are released we will test them and update this page with further instructions.

Additional Information

Protection from Spectre and Meldown requires both Operating System (Windows) updates as well as microcode run at the hardware level by the system's BIOS. At this time only operating system updates are available. As soon as BIOS updates are available Tightrope Media Systems will test and provide instructions for updating Cablecast servers.

To test if your server is vulnerable you can use this too: https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm

For more information on BIOS updates you can check our manufacturers status page: https://www.supermicro.com/support/security_Intel-SA-00088.cfm
