LEN-29406 security advisory: Only recommended update although high severity?

2020-03-21, 11:29 AM

What is the mapping of security advisories to update recommendations??

 

I was expecting high severity security issues lead to critical updates and would not have updated if I had not read the README by accident.

 

https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/LEN-29406

 

https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/r13uj42wd.txt

 

BTW: no mention of severity in README and not clickable in ThinkVantage tool! This doesn't seem to be the support I would expect...

 

So do I need to update all recommended updates immediately to keep secure? Is there any Security Advisory update channel for a specific laptop?

Thank you for posting the link. 

 

How would that work practically, would I have to go through all notices if my X395 is affected? Is there no backwards search?

 

Maybe I really have to scrape the site and try to implement it myself :(

 

Actually for the mentioned issue, the advisory seems incomplete:

 

ThinkPad X395  20NL,20NM  Target availability 2019-12-30

 

whatever this means?? The patch seems out there but is not linked!

 

I am a bit disappointed actually, since thinkpads are marketed as business devices.
