FreeBSD : FreeBSD -- Lazy FPU State Restore Information Disclosure (4e07d94f-75a5-11e8-85d1-a4badb2f4699)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 110653
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionA subset of Intel processors can allow a local thread to infer data
from another thread through a speculative execution side channel when
Lazy FPU state restore is used. Impact : Any local thread can
potentially read FPU state information from other threads running on
the host. This could include cryptographic keys when the AES-NI CPU
feature is present.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
