Killexams : Serious vulnerabilities in HP devices left unpatched for months on end null © Provided by TechRadar null

Multiple high-severity vulnerabilities affecting a number of HP business notebooks, business desktop PCs, point of sale systems, and workstations, have been sitting unpatched for months on end, researchers have warned. 

This could mean countless HP users are at risk of having their endpoints broken, their files stolen, or their digital accounts compromised, as all of the flaws found allow for arbitrary code execution. 

What’s more, as the flaws are in the firmware, they can persist even after reinstalling the operating system, experts have warned.

According to Binarly, the company found a total of six vulnerabilities - three in July 2021 and three more in April 2022, all of which are System Management Module (SMM) memory corruption vulnerabilities. 

The flaws are tracked as CVE-2022-23930 (8.2), CVE-2022-31644 (7.5), CVE-2022-31645 (8.2), CVE-2022-31646 (8.2), CVE-2022-31640 (7.5), and CVE-2022-31641 (7.5).

Since the disclosure, HP has published three security advisories for three of the flaws, and pushed three BIOS updates, fixing the flaws on some of the models. 

However, the company has failed to release any patches for the devices in Elite, Zbook, or ProBook series, as well as for ProDesk, EliteDesk, and ProOne series. HP workstations, including Z1, Z2, Z4, and Zcentral, are also still vulnerable to the flaws. 

Even though Binarly warned of the potential risk associated with not having patches for these flaws, the company did stress the difficulties that come with fixing vulnerabilities for a single vendor. 

“As a result of the complexity of the firmware supply chain, there are gaps that are difficult to close on the manufacturing end since it involves issues beyond the control of the device vendors,” it said in its report.

TechRadar Pro has reached out to HP for a comment on when it plans on releasing fixes for the affected devices,  and will update the article if we receive a reply.

Killexams : HP's Latest Enterprise VR Workstation Is a Backpack

As VR (virtual reality) looks to transform itself into an increasingly more mobile (aka convenient) experience HP has debuted a novel solution to the wires and tethers associated with VR today – a backpack.

At SIGGRAPH 2017, HP announced the HP Z VR Backpack, a 10-lb, wearable PC with enough horsepower for both experiencing and creating VR content. While it is easy to imagine the entertainment potential of the Z VR, HP has made it clear that it wants its new wearable PC to be catalyst for bringing more robust VR experiences to business and enterprise first and foremost. Safer simulation and training, virtual walkthroughs for architectural design, and better collaboration in virtual environments for product designers, are just a few of the use cases cited by HP.

At its core the Z VR Backpack is a Windows 10 PC with an Intel Core i7 processor, 32 GB of SDRAM, a Nvidia Quadro P5200 GPU, and up to 1 TB of internal storage. It measures in at 13.11 x 9.29 x 2.39 inches and weighs 10.25 lbs according to specs released by HP. The backpack is powered by a 55Whr lithium-ion battery and features two, external portable 74 Whr hot-swappable batteries. The Z VR can also be docked and serve as a desktop PC.

If you've had a chance to try VR for product design you know that the cords and wires can make for a very cumbersome (and potentially unsafe) work experience, particularly with multiple users operating in the same physical space. Without some sort of handy rig overhead to manage the wires and someone to spot you and hold the cords connecting your headset and controllers to the workstation, it only takes a few turns before you end up wrapped in cable clutter.

Placing VR into a backpack form factor goes a long way in addressing the cable clutter issues, but in hands-on demonstrations at SIGGRAPH it feels like comfort is still a big issue. At 10 lbs the backpack itself is not terribly heavy, but it is just heavy enough to be noticeable and one wonders how it will play out with extended use – particularly if adapted to more physically demanding tasks like entertainment (live-action shooting games) or design sessions that require prolonged standing.

The other issue, which to be fair is completely outside of HP's control, is the weight of the headset. The latest version of the HTC Vive weighs in at just over a pound. That may not sound significant but it becomes very noticeable when it's attached to your moving head (also consider a pair of memorizing glasses only weighs about 30-40 grams). Anyone that has ever worked out will tell you that adding a total of about 11 lbs to your bodyweight can have a significant impact.

But headsets are only promising to get lighter. Kopin, a manufacturer of lightweight displays, recently unveiled a reference design, codenamed Elf VR, that will used patented microdisplay panels to create a VR headset the company estimates will be about 50% lighter than headsets currently available.

The move to untethered VR with internal tracking must also be considered. Oculus and HTC have promised the next generation of their headsets will be wireless and companies including Microsoft and Qualcomm are working with partners to deliver untethered headsets as well. A lightweight, wireless headset that delivers the same fidelity as a tethered headset could make the placement of a workstation entirely irrelevant.

Depending on how long it takes for wireless VR products to roll out wide, HP's backpack could catch on with customers too impatient for untethered solutions. We'll have to wait and see whether the backpack PC becomes a standard or a footnote, but for now it may offer a good intermediary step toward fully free VR.

What do you think of HP's VR Backpack solution? Let us know in the comments.

Desktop Workstations 101: How to Buy the Right One

The central processing unit (CPU) is the lifeblood of any computer. This chip—or chips, as workstations can have more than one—is vitally important for complex tasks. Reference a CPU's core and thread count (both Intel and AMD high-end processors can handle two simultaneous computing threads per core) for a basic estimation of its processing power.

The least powerful CPUs you'd find in a workstation would have four cores apiece, while top-end ones can have 32 to 64 cores. Processors with higher core and thread counts are better for multitasking and especially long-running tasks like video encoding, though one with fewer cores and a higher clock speed or operating frequency (measured in gigahertz or GHz) may be more responsive for general use.

Today's true workstation-CPU families are the Intel Xeon and AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Threadripper Pro lines. The Threadripper has taken the market by storm by delivering more cores and threads per dollar than Xeons. Intel has responded by slashing prices, but the value edge still lies with AMD. The current Threadrippers top out at 64 cores.

The chips' weak point is that they're harder to find in workstations from major vendors such as Dell, HP, and Lenovo, where Intel remains by far the dominant choice. That may be poised to change a bit, though. In the summer of 2020, Lenovo announced an exclusive deal with AMD, in the launch of a ThinkStation model using a new line of workstation-minded Threadripper chips, the Threadripper Pro. We tested Threadripper Pro in the first Lenovo model to host it, the ThinkStation 620, and found it quite impressive. AMD has since released several Threadripper Pro chips to retail, working on a new socket and platform using the TRX80 chipset. (We later tested a 64-core version of it in a 2022 version of Threadripper Pro, which we linked to in the previous paragraph.)

It's not uncommon to see Intel Core and Core X-Series, as well as AMD Ryzen chips, offered in entry-level workstations. Truth be told, workstation CPUs are based on the same essential technologies as their civilian desktop counterparts. It's possible for a non-workstation CPU to perform just as well, if not better, assuming similar core and thread counts, though workstation CPUs scale to much higher core and thread counts. That said, there are reasons beside sheer performance to choose a workstation CPU.

One of those reasons is support for error-correcting code (ECC) memory. This type of RAM automatically corrects the tiny amount of data corruption that occurs in standard or non-ECC memory. This corruption is inconsequential for everyday use, but it's unacceptable in scientific, architectural, and financial fields where every decimal place matters.

Another mark in favor of workstation CPUs is the potential for high memory ceilings. Most desktop CPUs typically support anywhere from 32GB to 64GB of memory, with top-end chips just starting to support 128GB. That may sound like a lot compared to your laptop's 8GB or 16GB, but it's pocket change when you consider that some workstations can support 2TB (2,048GB) of memory or more. Simply put, workstation CPUs are a necessity when extraordinary amounts of memory are required. Similarly, workstation CPUs typically support more PCI Express lanes, a useful specification if many high-speed devices (such as multiple graphics cards for GPU-based compute, and PCI Express-based solid-state storage arrays) need to be connected.

Multi-CPU support is another capability that lies solely in the realm of workstation CPUs. The highest-end workstations can support two processors. It's expensive territory that you'd probably visit only if you need an extreme number of cores (more than can fit on a single CPU) and don't want to invest in a second computer. Ever-increasing CPU core counts have mitigated, but not eliminated, the need for what's known as symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) scenarios.

A workstation CPU is the only choice if you need the advantages described above. A non-workstation CPU will otherwise offer a better value, though some desktop workstations may not provide you a choice between, say, Intel's Xeon line and its Core family.


Understanding Workstation Graphics: Professional-Grade GPUs and ISV Certifications

No desktop workstation would be complete without the option for a dedicated graphics processing unit (GPU) or graphics card, as opposed to the relatively humble integrated graphics built into many CPUs. The use of a GPU can vary from simple photo editing to complex CGI and parallel processing. The more graphically intense the operation, the more powerful a GPU you'll need.

Lower-end workstations may offer gaming-class Nvidia GeForce and AMD Radeon GPUs. These can run professional apps from Autodesk and Adobe, but they may not be ideally suited for the job, and that's where the graphics vendors' professional-grade silicon—Radeon Pro for AMD, and RTX A series (formerly Quadro) for Nvidia—come in.

These cards may not appear all that different from their gaming cousins in appearance or general specifications, but the difference—and the reason for their often much higher prices—comes down to software and driver support. The drivers that accompany professional GPUs are exhaustively tested for compatibility, stability, and performance in specialized professional apps.

This is where the concept of independent software vendor (ISV) certifications comes into play. Most major workstation vendors will advertise ISV certification for specific apps such as Autodesk's AutoCAD and Maya or Dassault Systemes' SolidWorks. The ISV certification guarantees that the workstation is optimized and will work properly for a given program.

Just because a workstation doesn't carry an ISV certification, or the certification doesn't specify the app you're using, doesn't mean the app won't work. In fact, it most likely will. However, if you're in a line of work where guarantees are required, and you want an ironclad, up-front promise that the system is built for running a given application "just so," then your shopping list will be limited to ISV-certified workstations.

An up-and-coming concept in the workstation world is a more generic GPU driver that is built around maximizing compatibility with creative apps. Nvidia is already doing this with its Nvidia Studio Driver(Opens in a new window), which works on both GeForce and Quadro GPUs. The driver doesn't offer guaranteed compatibility like an ISV certification, but it's tested against creative software from popular vendors. (A list of apps is published on the driver download page.)

Let's get back to hardware. A low-end GPU is usually more than enough for photo editing, though video editors might want to step up to a midrange model with 6GB or more of display memory for 4K (or higher) source footage. If you're working with complex 3D models in product design, engineering, or other simulations, you'll generally want to invest in as powerful a GPU as possible, with 8GB or even 16GB of onboard memory. A GPU that isn't powerful enough may have trouble rendering onscreen models and wireframes.

It's common for workstations to support multiple GPUs, though caution should be used here. Adding a second graphics card to your workstation won't have much (if any) effect on performance if your application in question doesn't support multi-GPU environments, so it's important to verify your favorite apps first. As in gaming rigs, you're frankly better off buying the fastest single GPU you can afford. Explore a multi-GPU scenario only if your needs go beyond that.


Understanding Workstation Storage Options and Interfaces

Desktop workstations will offer, at the minimum, the same storage options as traditional desktops, including M.2-format solid-state drives (SSDs), 3.5-inch SATA hard drives, and 2.5-inch SATA SSDs. They also offer other storage technologies and interfaces that are useful in specialized scenarios.

One of these is the U.2 interface SSD, which is typically the size of a traditional 2.5-inch hard drive. The U.2 format offers higher capacities than M.2 drives since it provides more real estate for housing memory chips. Most U.2 drives use the PCI Express bus for data transfer, over which U.2 supports four lanes, but the interface can also be used for SATA and SAS drives. The latter stands for Serial Attached SCSI, another kind of storage interface typically found only in high-end workstations and servers. A SAS drive is typically used in data center or enterprise scenarios where maximum uptime and reliability are required.

Another kind of drive offered in high-end workstations is a PCI Express solid-state drive that plugs into a full-size PCI Express expansion slot on the motherboard, looking something like a low-profile graphics card. These drives offer higher capacities and better cooling than M.2 drives. Some drives in this format aren't drives at all, but caddies that hold multiple M.2 drives, useful in a scenario where the workstation's motherboard doesn't have enough M.2 slots on it.

Hot-swappable drives are a server-grade technology sometimes available in high-end workstations. These take the form of externally accessible 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch bays whose drives can be pulled out of the workstation and swapped while the system is running. They're useful if having tons of local storage is key or if you need to transport your data to another computer. Hot-swapping can also allow a failed drive in a RAID array to be replaced without downtime.

So which interfaces and storage formats are best? There is no simple answer to that question. It depends on the usage scenario. For bulk storage where speed and response time isn't critical, 3.5-inch SATA hard drives offer the most gigabytes per dollar. For reliability and better response times, it may be worth upgrading to a SAS drive, but the ever-decreasing cost of solid-state storage continues to make it more attractive than traditional hard drives. (See our SSD vs. HDD: What's the Difference? article for a rundown.)

The operating system, however, should be installed on an SSD for maximum performance. It's also worth paying the premium for solid-state storage for general purposes if your workflow involves memorizing and writing large amounts of data, as with 4K and 8K video editing. Look for PCI Express drives that support the Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) protocol for maximum throughput.

Everything discussed so far in this section involves internal storage. If being able to detach your storage quickly or take it with you is important, Intel-based workstations typically offer the option for add-in cards with one or more Thunderbolt 3 ports. The Thunderbolt 3 interface supports up to 40Gbps (or four lanes) of bi-directional throughput. Fast external storage drives and RAID arrays connected via Thunderbolt 3 can perform just as well as PCI Express drives connected internally.

Finally, there's network storage. The workstation's built-in Ethernet jack(s) may not provide enough bandwidth for storage demands, so you may see enhanced network interface cards (NICs) that provide high-speed Ethernet connections up to 5Gbps. Built-in Ethernet connections typically top out at 1Gbps.


Workstation Form Factors and Expansion

It pays to invest in a workstation that's more powerful than your current workload demands, so it will support your workflow in the long term. Take note of your workstation build; have you maximized its component choices? If so, it makes sense to step up to the next model so you have breathing room for upgrades.

For example, while you might not currently need more than 64GB of memory, it's nice to have the ability to expand to 256GB later. Storage limits aren't quite as set in stone, as storage capacity continues to grow in a given form factor, but you'll still want to ensure the workstation can handle your future storage needs, internally or externally.

The upgrade potential of a workstation is related to its physical design. Tower-style workstations based on traditional form factors, such as full ATX or Extended-ATX (E-ATX), have the most upgrade potential since they can house standardized parts, allowing for nearly any kind of component upgrade. By contrast, mini desktops and all-in-one designs (with the workstation in the base or back of a monitor) can greatly limit your upgrade options down the line and tend not to be the most cost-effective investments.

The GPU (or GPUs) in most workstations should be upgradable, provided the GPU is of a standard format such as a PCI Express card. The main concern with a GPU upgrade is whether the workstation's power supply can handle it. If your graphics needs may increase, think twice before opting for a lower-wattage power supply in your build, as you may end up needing to upgrade that if you add a more powerful GPU.


Connections: Which Ports Do You Need in a Desktop Workstation?

Nearly all workstations will have the types of ports you'd find on a normal desktop, including USB, video-out connectors, network connections, and audio jacks.

However, nonstandard or uncommon ports may be required depending on your workflow. Older or specialized equipment may still require serial or PS/2 connectors, while other workflows may require video input. Higher-end workstations usually offer any manner of add-in cards to provide functionality like this. Such cards can usually be added after purchase, though you should verify with the workstation maker that this is the case if you aren't configuring the system with add-in cards from the get-go.

The Thunderbolt 3 cards mentioned above are ideal for more than just adding external arrays of high-speed storage. Their high bandwidth makes it possible to connect devices such as external GPU enclosures.


Which Operating System Should You Get in a Workstation?

The apps you run will largely determine your choice of operating system, though you still might have a debate if your apps are cross-platform. Cost is always at the forefront. There's no such thing as a cheap macOS-based workstation, so you'll be looking at a Windows or Linux machine if you're spending less than the $5,000 starting price for Apple's sole standalone workstation model, the 2019 Mac Pro or the equally pricey iMac Pro (which starts at the same price). Both are in need of an update, as they haven't gone over to M1 or M2 processing. The Mac Pro tower is as high-end as workstations get, offering Xeon CPUs from eight to 28 cores, up to 1.5TB of memory, and one or two AMD Radeon Pro GPUs. It's an excellent example of a purpose-built desktop workstation, but we'd expect an eventual replacement. Arguably, the 2022 M1 Ultra-based Apple Mac Studio could suffice as one, for many Mac users,.

While Windows and macOS dominate mainstream desktops, it's common for workstation vendors to offer Linux installs or support. The supported distros such as Red Hat or Ubuntu vary, but the allure is the same. Unlike macOS and Windows, most Linux distros won't require you to pay for an operating system license, and many powerful software tools are available, often at reduced or no cost.

Something to note about Windows workstations is that Microsoft offers an upgraded and Xeon-optimized version of Windows 10 called Windows 10 Pro for Workstations(Opens in a new window) that incorporates many features found in Windows Server operating systems. It's naturally more expensive, so save your cash with a regular Windows 10 Pro license unless you need them.

One other factor in operating system choice is hardware support. If you need (or prefer) Nvidia GPUs, you can count out the Mac Pro or iMac Pro, as Apple offers them only with AMD Radeon Pro graphics cards. Windows and Linux workstations offer the widest latitude when it comes to choosing hardware. Also be mindful of any special hardware you need for your workflow, such as video-capture cards that may not be usable under certain operating systems. Apple's Boot Camp software can be used to run Windows on a Mac, but there's no official way to do things the other way around.


Business and Security Considerations With Workstations

Business and enterprise workstation buyers should be conscious of their needs for remote-management support and general device security. Intel tends to be the strongest on this front with its vPro platform, which is readily available on its Core and Xeon CPUs. AMD's alternative is Ryzen Pro on the mainstream Ryzen chips.

True workstations are designed for around-the-clock operation under stressful conditions. Their internal components are more robust than a normal desktop's, especially the power supply and motherboard. Their cooling systems are also more advanced so the workstation can keep its temperatures under control during nonstop operation.

If long-running tasks are part of your workflow, look for a workstation that isn't just a consumer or business PC with workstation components, as is often the case with lesser-priced models. Standalone workstation models are purpose-built and won't share much with their non-workstation brethren.

Manufacturers usually include workstations in their business- or professional-level support departments. This practice will vary with smaller vendors that may not offer separate support for consumer and business PCs. Regardless of the vendor, new workstations will come with a limited warranty that covers hardware defects for at least a year. It's sensible to invest in at least a three-year warranty on workstations over $1,000; you'll want to get at least that much time out of your investment.

Adding accidental damage coverage should be done at discretion; it might be a negligible expense next to the cost of a tricked-out workstation. Other warranty add-ons include enhanced support with rapid response times, including onsite service. The latter is almost always worthwhile, not only to minimize downtime but to save your workstation from the rigors of shipping if repairs are needed. Large workstation towers are especially vulnerable to damage in transit, regardless of how well they're packed.

All told, the total cost of any extended warranties and coverage generally shouldn't exceed 20% of the computer's price. This is rarely a problem when buying an expensive workstation, as even top-tier warranty coverage shouldn't run more than a few hundred dollars.


Where to Buy a Workstation

Workstations are best purchased directly from the vendor or an authorized retailer. This ensures you can get a system configured to your specifications, with a clear line of communication for sales and after-sales support. If you're going through a retailer, verify that any extended warranties or services are honored by the workstation vendor.

Think of a workstation as a longer-term investment that should expand to handle changing workflows. Start by choosing a software platform (macOS, Linux, or Windows) and then find a suitable model. Mac users have limited choices, but Linux and Windows fans have a slew of vendors to choose from. Only major vendors are likely to offer ISV certifications, if those are required for your work, and they'll also offer more comprehensive warranty and onsite support options.

When it comes to hardware, choose components that match your workflow, but don't overspend. Opting for pricey ECC memory when it's not needed, for example, won't have any real benefit. You can also pinch pennies by going with a gaming-grade GeForce GTX or RTX GPU and using an Nvidia Studio driver, though there's no replacement for a professional GPU when it comes to compatibility and stability with creative apps, especially if you'll leave your workstation running around the clock crunching data or media.

Refer to the paragraphs above for the finer details on workstation buying. All told, your purchase should be a hybrid of your current and future needs, as a workstation definitely isn't an impulse buy, nor the kind of computer you'll buy often.


So, Which Workstation Desktop Should I Buy?

Killexams : HP announces a range of powerful new ZBook mobile workstations

HP announced a new range of ZBook mobile workstations today, all of which use the new eighth-generation H-series Intel processors that were announced earlier this week. The new chips are hexa-core and quad-core depending on the SKU, and they're built on Intel's 14nm++ Coffee Lake architecture.

While we've seen various devices with the new chips, most of them have focused on gaming, such as Dell's new Alienware and G-series laptops, and Samsung's new Odyssey. These use Nvidia GeForce graphics, but being that HP's new laptops are focused on being workstations, they'll be using Quadro.

The new PCs are the ZBook 15, ZBook 15v, ZBook 17, ZBook Studio, and ZBook Studio x360, and they all offer something a little different.

The ZBook 15 and 15v both come with a 15.6-inch display that's offered in 1080p and 4K flavors, and anything between a quad-core Core i5 and a hexa-core Xeon processor. The 15v is for those looking for more value, so the GPU option is a 2GB Quadro P600, whereas the ZBook 15 offers up to 4GB Quadro P2000 graphics.

The ZBook 17 is the real powerhouse though. Offering the same quad- and hexa-core processor options, graphics can be configured with up to a 16GB Nvidia Quadro P5200 GPU. It also comes with up to 64GB of RAM and 2TB of internal storage. The display is a 17.3-inch IPS LCD, which comes in 1080p or 4K options.

And then there's the ZBook Studio and Studio x360, the latter being a 360-degree convertible. And with 4GB Quadro P1000 graphics in the x360 and up to a Xeon E-2186M vPro processor, it's easily one of the most powerful convertible PCs on the market. They also are offered with HP's Sure View display, which prevents people from looking over your shoulder and spying on what you're looking at.

All of the mobile workstations announced today will be coming in the beginning of May. The ZBook 15v will start at $949, the ZBook Studio will start at $1,299, and the ZBook Studio x360 will start at $1,499. Pricing for the ZBook 15 and 17 will be announced at a later date.
