This update adds new microcode updates to mitigate CVE-2020-8696 for Intel Skylake server (50654) and Cascade Lake Server (50656 & 50657) processors. The new microcode update mitigates an issue when using an active JTAG agent like In Target Probe (ITP), Direct Connect Interface (DCI) or a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) to take the CPU JTAG/TAP out of reset and then returning it to reset. Improper isolation of shared resources in some Intel® Processors may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via local access (CVE-2020-8698). Improper removal of sensitive information before storage or transfer in some Intel® Processors may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via local access (CVE-2020-8696).
