GB Labs Resilience (Spectre & Meltdown)

GB Labs has been made aware Spectre and Meltdown Vulnerability, we understand that it is a concern for customers, however, please be assured that GB Labs' solutions are not at risk. 

Spectre and Meltdown is vulnerability within Intel/AMD/ARM Processors; this can be seen in the following operating systems, Windows/Mac OS X/Linux. Utilising these flaws an attacker can bypass conventional security restrictions to gain access to system memory, however for this to be used a malicious code must be run on the target processor. As part of our OS resilience, we do not allow the installation of custom software that has not been through our rigorous testing or development processes. This resilience is further backed up by the inability to access websites or other dynamically generated programmes, meaning the exploit cannot be run in any form. Access to shells by users of the system is heavily restricted and does not allow custom code to be executed by third parties. All this can ensure that all GB Labs' products are unaffected. 

If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact GB Labs Support; we are available by email () or phone (+44 (0) 1184 555 000).
