Summary

IBM has released the following Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) fixes for System x, Flex and BladeCenter systems in response to Intel Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) Side Channel vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2019-11091 DESCRIPTION: Intel Microprocessor could allow a local authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a Microarchitectural Data Sampling Uncacheable Memory (MDSUM) vulnerability that allows uncacheable memory on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a side-channel attack to obtain data that is being processed in the CPU by other apps. Note: This is called the Zombieload attack.
CVSS Base Score: 3.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See <https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/160993&gt; for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2018-12130 DESCRIPTION: Intel Microprocessor could allow a local authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) vulnerability that fills buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a side-channel attack to obtain data that is being processed in the CPU by other apps. Note: This is called the Zombieload attack.
CVSS Base Score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See <https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/160992&gt; for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2018-12127 DESCRIPTION: Intel Microprocessor could allow a local authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) vulnerability that fills buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a side-channel attack to obtain data that is being processed in the CPU by other apps. Note: This is called the Zombieload attack.
CVSS Base Score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See <https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/160991&gt; for the current score

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2018-12126 DESCRIPTION: Intel Microprocessor could allow a local authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) vulnerability that stores buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a side-channel attack to obtain data that is being processed in the CPU by other apps. Note: This is called the Zombieload attack.
