Can Kerio/GFI confirm their position on the Meltdown And Spectre vulnerability please. Do you have a timeframe on a patch to protect against these?

We've been keeping up with the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities and have gone over our products to find out what we can do to ensure our products are safe.

The best defense for these vulnerabilities is to be running the latest version of all OS's. We also recommend ensuring customers are running the latest versions of all software. Microsoft, Apple, and Google have been working on the vulnerabilities, and updates for their OS's are available from all vendors.

Our hardware appliances (Kerio Control and also Exinda) run on closed systems, making vulnerabilities like these, where applications can interfere with each other, a non issue. Nevertheless, we will be updating these appliances to ensure we bring in all recommendations for these vulnerabilities.

For other products, Amazon web services is used by Kerio and GFI Software products, and Amazon have patched their systems for the Meltdown vulnerability.

GFI OneGuard and GFI LanGuard have been been updated to check for OS updates to ensure networks are safe from the latest vulnerabilities.

The Kerio Control software appliance uses the same closed OS as the hardware version.

Can you give us updates on this flaw in the history : http://www.kerio.fr/content/control-release-history ?

It is important for us to be able to reassure our customers about the security of Kerio products, especially regarding the firewall
