Impact of vulnerability Elevation of Privilege
Severity rating Important
Original release Jun 29, 2015
Last revised Aug 13, 2015

Summary: 

System firmware of certain products does not completely protect platform configuration data.

Description: 

During resume from sleep, system firmware needs to reinitialize hardware to a secured configuration. In order to protect against malware that has already compromised an OS, firmware must protect all of this configuration data and the mechanism by which it is processed. This firmware update adds protections to the platform configuration data.
