Hotfix and Information About Other Fixes
The following patches are available to resolve these vulnerabilities:
7.0.1.03E16 and 8.3.2E154 prevent execution of programs not published by Forcepoint by disallowing binaries of type "scrp" from being executed, which a rogue administrator (Admn) could have done previously. Scripts are still allowed with type "scrp". The patch also provides detection of a Meltdown attack in progress, killing the offending program and auditing that the attack occurred. This patch has no performance impact.
If you are running Sidewinder or Control Center on VMware, please be sure to apply the VMware patches as well.
