Some Huawei devices are prone to three new cpu side-channel vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
These vulnerabilities are named by researchers as 'Foreshadow' and 'Foreshadow-NG'. They are also known as L1 Terminal Fault (L1TF) in the industry.

Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could allow a local attacker to read the memory of other processes in specific situations.

Affected Versions:
Huawei 1288H V5, 2288H V5, 2488 V5, 2488H V5, 5288 V3, RH1288 V3, RH2288 V3, RH2288H V3, XH310 V3, XH321 V3, XH620 V3, XH622 V3, XH628 V3, 5288 V5, BH622 V2, BH640 V2, CH121 V3, CH220 V3, CH222 V3, CH121 V5, CH121L V5, CH121H V3, CH121L V3, CH140L V3, CH225 V3, CH140 V3, CH226 V3, CH242 V3, CH242 V3 DDR4, CH242 V5, Honor MagicBook (VLT-W50/ VLT-W60), HUAWEI MateBook (HZ-W09/ HZ-W19/ HZ-W29), HUAWEI MateBook B200, MateBook D (PL-W09/ PL-W19 PL-W29), HUAWEI MateBook D (MRC-W10/ MRC-W50/ MRC-W60), HUAWEI MateBook X Pro (MACH-W19/ MACH-W29), RH1288 V2, RH1288A V2, RH2265 V2, RH2285 V2, RH2285H V2, RH2288 V2, RH2268 V2, RH2288A V2, RH2288E V2, RH2288H V2, RH2485 V2, RH5885 V2 4S, RH5885 V2 8S, RH5885 V3 (E7V2), RH5885 V3 (E7V3&E7V4), RH5885H V3 (E7V2), RH5885H V3 (E7V3), RH5885H V3 (E7V4), RH8100 V3 (E7V2&E7V3), RH8100 V3 (E7V4) and XH321 V5.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
