Hi MadHatch,

 

Our team is aware of the issue and are looking into the matter.

 

 

Sorry to bug again about this: but if there is NO issue with this that needs fixing, will the team let us know that as well?

There are readily available tools to check if your system is vulnerable to the new Intel MDS issues, and I have run these checks, and YES the "old" Corsair One 2017/2018 models are indeed vulnerable to this. So please Corsair, can we have a new BIOS that has the needed fixes in it? These MDS issues are very serious.

Current model CORSAIR ONE systems have new BIOS versions available to address these vulnerabilities.

 

Here's my post about it: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=187954

 

We're currently working with our motherboard partner for similar BIOS updates on other CORSAIR systems and previous generation CORSAIR ONE.

Just checked this page for updates, and I have a question -

 

I have a (according the label on the bottom of my machine) a "Corsair One Pro CS-9000011" which has the Intel 7700K and Z270 MB. Obviously no new BIOS has been released? So my question is this: is this machine at risk, or do I not need to worry? The released BIOS's for the 2017/2018 C-Ones seem to be aimed at the 8700 processors - or am I missing something?

Z270 motherboards require slightly different flashing procedure. We'll post when that's available.

 

Sorry to bump the thread - but is there is any news for those of us with C1's with 7th Gen Processors and Z270 motherboards?

Hey MadHatch, no updates quite yet. As soon as I have something to share, I'll update y'all.

Thank you. I noticed on the MSI website that they haven't updated the BIOS for the board in sometime. Bit of a worry, have they stopped supporting it?

Interesting observation. Hopefully that isn't the case.

 

With apologies Corsair CJ, any chance of chasing for an update on when the security patch will be downloadable?

 

No worries! I have nothing to report yet unfortunately. Thanks for checking in though!

Well... One helpful reply directing me to contact MSI as they don't look at the forum. And one unhelpful reply stating that the board is three years old of course it's not being supported *sigh*

 

Then why are they still providing updates for other parts of it? (the last one dated the end of July 2019)?

 

Shall see what, if anything, MSI have to say.

Update:

 

after contacting MSI directly, they have sent me BIOS M-Flash file called "E7A66IMS.41J" (ftp://jerryuser:2020GAMING@ftp2.msi.com.tw/BIOS/BIOS0809/E7A66IMS.41J.rar)

 

I do not know if I can use this on my Corsair One Pro CS-9000011, and I would advise the same to any other CS-9000011/I7-7700K C-One users. I am posting this here to see what the actual C-One developers think!!!

Unless MSI said this is for your model of CORSAIR ONE, I DO NOT RECOMMEND flashing this BIOS since you'll likely brick your board. The differences between the retail MSI board and the board used in CORSAIR ONE Pro CS-9000011 are significant enough where a BIOS flash will likely fail and risk making the system unusable.

 

I'll check in with our team again for further updates/clarification. :)

All I asked is if they were going to address the MDS vulnerability with a BIOS update to the Z270I motherboard. The replies I got on the MSI forums from other user of the stock board were not helpful (and in some cases rude). But it's down to MSI to police there forums :D:

 

They sent me a PM asking me to submit a ticket, and asked for full system specs (which I did send them). The above link to a BIOS was what they sent.

 

I have no intention of applying this BIOS unless Corsair give me the go ahead to do so - and as stated in my post, I advice all CS-9000011 (2017/2018 I7-7700K Corsair One) users to not use it as well. My only reason for posting the link was to get the information to the development team and see what they think. If the Development team have a copy of the file from MSI, I am happy to edit my post to remove the link. I have it downloaded, so if need be I can email it direct to Corsair if you want.

 

I hope it's of some help!
