VULNERABILITY SUMMARY

A vulnerability in HPE certain Gen10 Servers, DL20 Gen9, ML30 Gen9 and

certain Apollo servers with Intel Server Platform Service (SPS) v4.0 are

vulnerable to local Denial of Service and execution of arbitrary code.

**Note:** Intel has identified security vulnerabilities which could

potentially place impacted platforms at risk. An issue impacts Intel Server

Platform Service (SPS) v4.0 used in certain HPE servers. The SPS/ME firmware

used in Intels architecture can be compromised with physical access such

that non-authenticated code may be executed in the SPS environment outside of

the visibility of the user and operating system administrator. Intel has

released new revisions of the Intel Server Platform Service (SPS) firmware to

address this vulnerability.
