Heya Maintainer,

can you have a look at this? Is this relevant?
Comment 4 Sean Bruno freebsd_committer 2020-07-24 13:46:04 UTC
Well, its definitely relevant, but is way outside of my knowledge areas.

If you're asking if this should be patched into VUXML, that's a secteam question IMO.  I can't tell if there's any version of microcode that fixes the issues linked in the update.
Comment 5 Thomas Zander freebsd_committer 2020-12-28 13:08:04 UTC
(In reply to Sean Bruno from comment #4)

Good point, Sean. We are going to continue having a hard time verifying if a microcode update actually fixes a problem for good.

However, we can say for certain that devcpu-data before the given version number definitely contains the issue. Hence, it should be documented in vuxml, otherwise pkg audit won't show any known CVEs for earlier versions of the port.
