• MDS (aka: Zombieload) Issue

    I’ve been reading about the latest Intel exploit MDS otherwise known as Zombieload. Has this already been addressed with the latest Kernel updates?


  • @Adam-Worth
    I guess kernel version 5.1.2 has some fixes for it.
    More info here: https://www.zdnet.com/article/linux-vs-zombieload/

  • @manuel LOL, that’s actually the article I read this morning. I just wasn’t very clear if it was going to be a Kernel or Microcode update (or both) that we’d see as a fix. Thanks for the reply, though!

  • @Adam-Worth
    I guess Intel must create new microcode as well. But so far I don’t know if they have done that.

  • @Adam-Worth
    Right, now there’s new intel-ucode package.
    Don’t know how many of the issues it resolves, AFAIK there were four different issues.

  • @manuel Thank you. I just saw that, and I’ve installed/updated. Let’s cross our fingers. 🤞🏼 I’ll go ahead and mark this solved in the meantime.
