This component provides updated system firmware that can be installed directly on supported Operating Systems. Additionally, when used in conjunction with Smart Update Manager (SUM) and Insight Control for VMware vCenter, this Component allows the user to update firmware on remote servers from a central location. This remote deployment capability eliminates the need for the user to be physically present at the server in order to perform a firmware update.

Prerequisites:

This component requires that the following HPE drivers be loaded before the component can run.

1. The 'HPE ProLiant iLO 3/4 Channel Interface Driver” (CHIF) must be installed and running.

The minimum iLO version for ESXi 5.5 and ESXi 6.0 and ESXi 6.5 is 1.4. The minimum iLO version for ESXi 6.7 is 10.1.0.

2. The “Compaq ROM Utility Driver” (CRU) must be installed and running

The minimum CRU version for ESXi 5.5 is 5.5.4.1.

The minimum CRU version for ESXi 6.0 is 6.0.8.

The minimum CRU version for 6.5 is 6.5.8.

The minimum CRU version for 6.7 is 6.7.10.

Both drivers are integrated into the HPE VMware Custom Image which also contains other HPE advanced management tools. The drivers are also available from the OS specific “HPE Agentless Management Service Offline Bundle” for VMware vSphere 6.7, 6.5, 6.0, 5.5 on vibsdepot.hpe.com.

To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with the following SHA-256 Checksum values:

These vulnerabilities may allow unauthorized disclosure of information residing in the L1 data cache to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis. These security vulnerabilities are not unique to HPE servers and impact any servers utilizing impacted processors. Note that this server is NOT vulnerable to L1 Terminal Fault – SGX (CVE-2018-3615), also known as Foreshadow, because this server does NOT support SGX.

This revision of the System ROM includes the latest revision of the Intel microcode which, in combination with operating system updates, provides mitigation for the Speculative Store Bypass (also known as Variant 4) security vulnerability. A Medium level CVE has been assigned to this issue with ID CVE-2018-3639. Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and speculative execution of memory reads before the addresses of all prior memory writes are known may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis. This security vulnerability is not unique to HPE servers and impacts any systems utilizing impacted processors.

This revision of the System ROM includes the latest revision of the Intel microcode which provides mitigation for the Rogue Register Read (also known as Variant 3a) security vulnerability. A Medium level CVE has been assigned to this issue with ID CVE-2018-3640. Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and that perform speculative reads of system registers may allow unauthorized disclosure of system parameters to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis. This security vulnerability is not unique to HPE servers and impacts any systems utilizing impacted processors.

Version:2.60_05-21-2018 (2 Jul 2018)

Upgrade Requirement:
Critical - HPE requires users update to this version immediately.

Important Notes:

This revision of the System ROM includes the latest revision of the Intel microcode which, in combination with operating system and hypervisor updates, provides mitigation for the L1 Terminal Fault – OS/SMM (CVE-2018-3620) and L1 Terminal Fault – VMM (CVE-2018-3646) security vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may allow unauthorized disclosure of information residing in the L1 data cache to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis. These security vulnerabilities are not unique to HPE servers and impact any servers utilizing impacted processors. Note that this server is NOT vulnerable to L1 Terminal Fault – SGX (CVE-2018-3615), also known as Foreshadow, because this server does NOT support SGX.

This revision of the System ROM includes the latest revision of the Intel microcode which, in combination with operating system updates, provides mitigation for the Speculative Store Bypass (also known as Variant 4) security vulnerability. A Medium level CVE has been assigned to this issue with ID CVE-2018-3639. Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and speculative execution of memory reads before the addresses of all prior memory writes are known may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis. This security vulnerability is not unique to HPE servers and impacts any systems utilizing impacted processors.

This revision of the System ROM includes the latest revision of the Intel microcode which provides mitigation for the Rogue Register Read (also known as Variant 3a) security vulnerability. A Medium level CVE has been assigned to this issue with ID CVE-2018-3640. Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and that perform speculative reads of system registers may allow unauthorized disclosure of system parameters to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis. This security vulnerability is not unique to HPE servers and impacts any systems utilizing impacted processors.

Upgrade Requirement:
Critical - HPE requires users update to this version immediately.

Important Notes:

This revision of the System ROM includes the latest revision of the Intel microcode which, in combination with operating system updates, provides mitigation for Variant 2 of the Side Channel Analysis vulnerability, also known as Spectre. The revision of the microcode included in this System ROM does NOT have issues with more frequent reboots and unpredictable system behavior which impacted the previous Intel microcode which was part of the Spectre Variant 2 mitigation. Additional information is available from Intel’s Security Exploit Newsroom, https://newsroom.intel.com/press-kits/security-exploits-intel-products/.

Ver. 2.56_01-22-2018 (B) contains support for VMware vSphere 6.7. It is functionally equivalent to ver. 2.56_01-22-2018. It is not necessary to upgrade with version 2.56_01-22-2018 (B) if a previous component revision was used to upgrade the firmware to ver. 2.56_01-22-2018.
