Root Cause of Reboot Issue Identified; Updated Guidance for Customers and Partners
 
January 22, 2018
By Navin Shenoy

As we start the week, I want to provide an update on the reboot issues we reported Jan. 11. We have now identified the root cause for Broadwell and Haswell platforms, and made good progress in developing a solution to address it. Over the weekend, we began rolling out an early version of the updated solution to industry partners for testing, and we will make a final release available once that testing has been completed.

Based on this, we are updating our guidance for customers and partners:

We recommend that OEMs, cloud service providers, system manufacturers, software vendors and end users stop deployment of current versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behavior. For the full list of platforms, see the Intel.com Security Center site.
We ask that our industry partners focus efforts on testing early versions of the updated solution so we can accelerate its release. We expect to share more details on timing later this week.
We continue to urge all customers to vigilantly maintain security best practice and for consumers to keep systems up-to-date.
I apologize for any disruption this change in guidance may cause. The security of our products is critical for Intel, our customers and partners, and for me, personally. I assure you we are working around the clock to ensure we are addressing these issues.

I will keep you updated as we learn more and thank you for your patience.

Here's a list of all vendors affected.
I do know that Apple has updated there firmware when they updated ISO to 11.2.2

Microsoft is also updated but there are other issues as described in my previous post about Intel.

Updates Talk / Mozilla Firefox Quantum 58.0

Gordon, where are you finding Mozilla Firefox Quantum 58.0 at.
I have checked for updates on the help button and only come up with 57.0.4 (64-bit) which I'm using 64-bit.
Also there are no release notes or build notes anywhere I can find and when I go to Fully Localized Versions I only come up with 57.0.4.

I do see the 58.0 direct download but no other details about it anywhere..
I would think in 3 days time that there would be something out there.
Is this still a beta?
Never have I seen it be so delayed. I wonder if they pulled it?

Do we have anywhere a tutorial on Rules?

I need to lock down %local/temp% on all accounts, and I think I need to delete the default rule before I do anything else.  Of course, this might well be better handled by Custom Folders?

A-a-a-nd, while I'm here, is there an updated user manual yet?  I don't mind using Beta versions, but after a while I'm running blind without current instructions.

found an error with the voodooai.

when using this website: https://csgoswap.com/ and selecting an item and pressing right click on it, then selecting inspect in game, voodooshield promp pops and says voodooai error.
using the latest stable version.

could be that the item you selected is not an executable file, and IIRC when that happens VAi function of VS does not work.  This is based on my past experience with VS/VAi, ie, I did not go to the URL you reference above.  I suspect Dan will chime in soon.

my guess is that it launches some kind of script since it affects external app from chrome (csgo game). maybe voodooai doesnt work with this type of scripts. anyways i'll leave this one for Dan to figure it out.
