Is it enough " If I update at VMware Hypervisor or both Hypervisor and server 2012?


  • Hi all,

    Good morning everyboday. I would like to ask one question to clarify? So, anyone please suggest to me. 

    In my network, I used dell rack server with Vmware ESXi Hypervisor. Then, I have create Windows Server VMs on that Hypervisor. In these day, we are hear many information about "Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerability".

    I have read to protect such vulnerability. But, I am a little confuse it. Do I need to make security update on both Vmware Hypervisor and Windows Servers? If I make security update only Vmware Hypervisor, is it not enough? 

    Anyone please suggest to me for such condition. Thanks you.

    Best regard,

    Phyo Sithu
