Intel SA-00233 Processor Vulnerabilities in NetApp Products

Summary

Multiple NetApp products incorporate Intel chipsets and processors. Some Intel processors are vulnerable to speculative execution attacks via Microarchitectural Store Buffer Data Sampling (MSBDS), Microarchitectural Load Port Data Sampling (MLPDS), Microarchitectural Fill Buffer Data Sampling (MFBDS), or Microarchitectural Data Sampling Uncacheable Memory (MDSUM). Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could lead to disclosure of sensitive information. Refer to the vendor advisory INTEL-SA-00233 for specific version details.

Impact

Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could lead to disclosure of sensitive information.

For virtualized deployments, NetApp recommends working with your hypervisor and cloud platform vendors to ensure that your NetApp product is running on a secure and patched platform. For Docker-based deployments, NetApp recommends working with your operating system and hardware vendors to ensure that your NetApp product is running on a secure and patched platform.
