From the Intel firmware github's latest update ( https://github.com/intel/Intel-Linux-Processor-Microcode-Data-Files )
Security updates for [INTEL-SA-00528](https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/security-center/advisory/intel-sa-00528.html)
Security updates for [INTEL-SA-00532](https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/security-center/advisory/intel-sa-00532.html)
The first addresses use of Running Average Power Levels (RAPL) MSR to extract keys from other processes. We allow use of this MSR to BHYVE guests only, currently.
The second one involves a corner-case of control flow management being able to deny service.
