Protecting Compliance From The Meltdown / Spectre Issue

BasisCode has been working on the Meltdown / Spectre issue from the moment of the announcement.  In our testing environments, we have applied all OS updates and other necessary software updates including Antivirus and SQL Server.  We have completed our testing and will be applying these updates to all production environments by January 21st.


HP and Dell have been working with Intel to develop a patch for these vulnerabilities.  Both companies released their patches on January 12th.  Our infrastructure partner, CenturyLink, has tested these patches and deployed the firmware updates to all environments beginning on January 15th.

Finally, we have reviewed all BasisCode employee machines to ensure all Antivirus and OS updates have been properly applied.  We highly recommend our clients apply all necessary updates to their machines as well.

BasisCode takes security very seriously and we are monitoring all environments closely.  In addition, we are also monitoring performance to ensure the application continues to perform at a high level for your business needs.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.  Please check as we will issue another update once all patching is completed.  Thank you for your patience as we work through these issues.
