Summary: Dell released an update utility to mitigate a security vulnerability affecting the dbutil_2_3.sys driver packaged with Dell Client firmware update utility packages and tools.

The vulnerability exists in the dbutil_2_3.sys driver. This driver file may have been installed on your Dell Windows operating system when you used firmware update utility packages, Dell Command Update, Dell Update, Alienware Update, Dell System Inventory Agent, or Dell Platform Tags, including when using any Dell notification solution to update drivers, BIOS, or firmware for your system. To best protect yourself, Dell recommends removing the dbutil_2_3.sys driver from your system by following one of three options listed in Remediation Step 1 below.
