Hello and welcome to our first security advisory release in 2021. This month we are releasing 19 advisories addressing 57 CVEs. 55 of these issues are the result of our ongoing investments in security research. 40 of these, including the vulnerability with the highest CVSS score of 8.8, were found internally and another 15 reported through our Bug Bounty program.
Here’s a quick break down of severities and how they were found:
|Severity||Internally Found||Externally Reported||Total|
|High||6||3 (3 Bug Bounty)||9|
|Medium||19||13 (12 Bug Bounty)||32|
The bulk of advisories this month are software driver updates for graphics components and firmware/software updates for ethernet components. While you may be able to retrieve these updates direct from Intel, we recommend that you check with your system manufacturer for updates specific to your system. Find links to system manufacturer support sites HERE.
