UIS is working with vendors to address the Meltdown/Spectre vulnerabilities

last modified Jan 24, 2019 02:36 PM
UIS is aware of the recently disclosed processor vulnerabilities and is working with vendors to patch UIS systems.

UIS is aware of the recently disclosed vulnerabilities in processors made by Intel, AMD and ARM, and we're working with our vendors to patch UIS systems, where appropriate. We'll go through our usual process of assessing the vulnerabilities and the patches as they’re released, using publicly available information and guidance from vendors, to determine which patches to apply and when. We'll announce any impacts on system availability through our Twitter feed.
