Spectre/Meltdown: Second BIOS update available

 

Many Shuttle products with/for Kaby Lake processors are currently receiving another update to close the "Spectre” security loophole. Updated BIOS versions for devices based on this platform are available to download in the download section of Shuttle Headquarters.

The new versions contain updated Microcode updates (00x84), relating to the Kaby Lake platform, which Intel has provided to its hardware partners.

The update (00xC2) for our Skylake-based Mini-PCs provided back in January is still current and the devices are thus secured (see list below).

However, with all updates that are offered it should be noted again that they only guarantee the best possible protection in conjunction with an up-to-date operating system which for its part is provided with the latest daily updates and patches.

New BIOS updates have been published for the following models (in alphabetical order):
DH110, DH110SE, DH170, DH270, DQ170, DS77U, DS77U3, DS77U5, DS77U7, NC03U, NC03U3, NC03U5, NC03U7, SH110R4, SH170R6, SZ170R8, SZ170R8V2, SZ270R8, SZ270R9, X50V6, XH110, XH110G, XH110V, XH170V, XH270

Updates for further products are being prepared.

Skylake-based products which have already received an update (in alphabetical order):
DS67U, DS67U3, DS67U5, DS67U7, DS68U, NC02U, NC02U3, NC02U5, NC02U7, X50V5, X50V5U3
