1.9 Security Best Practices for PlateSpin Hosts

As a security best practice, you should apply patches that address security vulnerabilities to your PlateSpin Migrate Server host and PlateSpin Migrate Client host, as you would for other Windows servers in your enterprise.

Micro Focus is aware of the side-channel analysis vulnerabilities described in CVEs 2017-5715, 2017-5753 and 2017-5754, known as Meltdown and Spectre. The current recommended actions have been applied on the PlateSpin Server images in the cloud.

We strongly recommend that you continue to apply security updates that address such threats as recommended by Microsoft for the Windows operating system for the PlateSpin Server host and PlateSpin Migrate Client host. Consult the vendor documentation for information. See Protect Your Windows Devices Against Spectre and Meltdown on the Microsoft Support website.
