OpenBSD Errata: August 9th, 2019 (swapgs)
8 August, 2019 by email@example.com | openbsd
Errata patches for the kernel have been released for OpenBSD 6.4 and 6.5. Intel CPUs have another cross privilege side-channel attack. (SWAPGS) Binary updates for the amd64 platform are available via the syspatch utility. Source code patches can be found on the respective errata page: https://www.openbsd.org/errata64.html https://www.openbsd.org/errata65.html As these affect the kernel, a reboot will be needed after patching.
