AMD published three stability bulletins yesterday addressing the stability vulnerabilities influencing its EPYC processors and the Radeon graphics driver for Home windows 10. Though numerous are marked Substantial severity, they are mitigated with a driver update and AGESA deals.
The chipmaker exposed 22 potential vulnerabilities that have an impact on a few generations of EPYC processors: EPYC 7001 (Naples), EPYC 7002 (Rome) and EPYC 7003 (Milan). The exploits especially focus on the AMD System Security Processor (PSP), AMD Method Administration Unit (SMU), AMD Protected Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) and other platform components.

Mainstream customers have to have to have at the very least Radeon Adrenalin 21.4.1 set up, which is not a significant difficulty assuming that most, if not all, consumers should really by now be on the most up-to-date 21.11.2 model. On the other hand, enterprise consumers will require to make absolutely sure that they’re running at the incredibly least the Radeon Pro Enterprise 21.Q2 driver. But, once more, we don’t see this staying an issue considering that the hottest 21.Q3 driver has been obtainable due to the fact September.
The past protection vulnerability targets AMD’s μProf tool, which analyzes application performance on operating programs, such as Home windows, Linux and FreeBSD. The chipmaker endorses customers update the μProf resource to version 3.4.394 on Windows and 3.4-502 on Linux.
