ASUSTOR Responds to Intel Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities

ASUSTOR Inc. is releasing ADM to version 3.0.5 to fix the Meltdown security vulnerability in Intel CPUs. The models receiving an update are: AS3100, AS3200, AS5000, AS5100, AS6100, AS6200, AS6300, AS6400 and AS7000 series. For the AS6302T and AS6404T NAS devices, ASUSTOR is releasing a BIOS update to patch the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. Other x86 NAS will be patched as soon as Intel releases a patch.

For ASUSTOR's other models, they will be patched as soon as an updated Linux kernel is released. On non-Intel CPU models, ASUSTOR is also continuing to work with the other relevant CPU manufacturers. ASUSTOR takes security very seriously. When further information is released, customers will be informed through the appropriate channels.

It is worth mentionning that phpvirtualbox has lost all posibility to run properly since i upgraded to ADM 3.0.5 RU1

Consequently i can't run existing VMs, can't create new ones, can't import OVF appliances.

If you can downgrade and can operate your unit without the internet, do so. You'll get the functionality back and prevent the vulnerability but at the cost of no internet access for that unit. I know a bunch of people, business' and governments that are employing such a tactic to keep certain assets secure.
