A software fix is being developed to resolve this issue to allow customers to continue using the Hardware Acceleration feature. If you do not use the Hardware Acceleration feature then your device is not vulnerable to this issue and do not need to apply the software fix.
To resolve these issues, please upgrade to the following releases:
- PCS 8.1r5 / PPS 5.1R5
- PCS 8.0r13 / PPS 5.0R13
- PCS 7.4R13.5
- PCS 7.1r22.2
- How can I tell if my PCS device has the Hardware Acceleration option and if it is enabled? If the SSL Hardware accelerator card is installed, only then will the following option be visible in the admin GUI.
Under Maintenance > System > Options > Enable SSL acceleration check box is enabled. Note: The system will reboot when this setting is modified
- Are there any side effects to disabling Hardware Acceleration?
In a clustered environment, system refers to all the cluster members, so changing the hardware acceleration option on one cluster member causes all the cluster members to reboot simultaneously.
