Intel® AMT Critical Firmware Vulnerability

2017-05-15, 17:43 PM

On May 1, Intel published a security advisory regarding a critical firmware vulnerability in certain systems that utilize Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT), Intel® Standard Manageability (ISM) or Intel® Small Business Technology (SBT). The vulnerability could enable a network attacker to remotely gain access to business PCs or devices that use these technologies. Lenovo is aware of this problem and has published Lenovo Security Advisory: LEN-14963, which includes a timetable for their scheduled fix for specific platforms.  


Sorry, I did not realize that this is duplicate information already published in the forum: Vulnerability-hits-Intel.

Re: Intel® AMT Critical Firmware Vulnerability

I am having a problem installing the Lenovo patches for the AMT Vulnerability silently.


running e.g. girg36ww.exe /silent.  This partly works, however, gets stuck at an informational box telling you you need to close apps etc.  This requires user to click next.  Because of this the package just gets stuck at "installing" in SCCM.  Is there a switch to get it to install without any interaction.  Don't want to have to find a third party tool to "record" clicking Next if I can just pass it a switch.
