Hi all,

 

As you may all know, in the last days where discovered 2 big security flaws on CPUs named Meltdown and Spectre (https://spectreattack.com/)

 

I have a HP Microserver N40L and after search the HP support site I did not find any information about how and if HP will release any patch or update to the N40L in order to fix this security issues.

 

Does anyone has any news or information about how HP is handling this?

 

Edit: Just found the HP page about this at: http://h22208.www2.hpe.com/eginfolib/securityalerts/SCAM/Side_Channel_Analysis_Method.html and I don't see any mention to HP microserver N40L

 

Thanks

Great question - came here to find out if I'm likely to experience any W10 update issues on my micro server.

 

Be great if you post anything else you find

I have applied the Windows 10 cumulative update to N40, N54 and GEN8 microservers without issue ...

... taking the OS to build level 16299.192 ...

... seems like this could cause a double-digit reduction in performance from Microsoft reports.

Im not using my N40L with Windows 10. On your case with Windows 10, the windows update is just one part of the solution. The only true way to fix the issue is with a hardware/firmware update from HP.

 

I found one more link about this and still no mention to the N40L:

https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05869091

 

And I also open a post of the official HP enterprise forum. Until now no response:

https://community.hpe.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-Netservers/N40L-Update-for-Meltdown-and-Spectre-Security-Vulnerability/td-p/6993166

 

Anyone else know more?
