ME firmware updates

2017-05-02, 17:12 PM

Lenovo, what is the ETA for the AMT/vPro vulnerability fixes as per recent news?

 

INTEL-SA-00075 Detection Guide

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26755

 

Specifically, according to Intel:

  • An unprivileged network attacker could gain system privileges to provisioned Intel manageability SKUs: Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) and Intel Standard Manageability (ISM).
  • An unprivileged local attacker could provision manageability features gaining unprivileged network or local system privileges on Intel manageability SKUs: Intel Active Management Technology (AMT), Intel Standard Manageability (ISM), and Intel Small Business Technology (SBT).

(from The Register)

 

I see the 2nd gen X-Series just got a ME firmware update but it is the non-patched version as the build versions are less than 3000. For our 4th, 3rd and 2nd gen X-Series we're looking for this versions:

 

    4-gen Core family / 2nd Gen X-Series: 9.5.61.3012 (current 9.5.60.1952)

    5-gen Core family / 3rd Gen X-Series: 10.0.55.3000 (current 10.0.50.1004)
    6-gen Core family / 4th Gen X-Series: 11.0.25.3001/11.6.27.3264 (current 11.6.25.1229)

 

It is very encouraging that Lenovo still provides ME updates so hopefully we can get the above patched versions soon.

 

Thanks!

It's back. The support site was down for a while this morning.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
