DH87RL - Foreshadow

Hello,

Any news about the new bios for the DH87RL?

it has been marked as TBD for 3 months (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000028718/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards.ht... Intel-SA-00115 for Intel® Desktop Boards). Because of foreshadow L1TF I would be happy to have a clearer timeline.

From what I could see the microcodes are ready (https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/sa00115-microcode-update-guidance.pdf https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/sa00115-microcode-update-guidance.pdf ) so from there it should be pretty simple to release a fixed BIOS.

Cheers!

From what I understood 0331 fixed https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000026630/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards.ht... Intel-SA-00088 for Intel® Desktop Boards, which was the first variants of spectre. The documentation states that in order to be protected against foreshadow you need to have the fix for the later variants as well https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000028718/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards.ht... Intel-SA-00115 for Intel® Desktop Boards

I have three of the boards that are TBD. We will just have to wait to see what is decided/determined.

One month later, and there is still no patch or any update on SA page.

Could intel provide more informations? While I understand that those boards are not supported anymore, this security issue is pretty severe and Intel committed to fix it.
