ME firmware updates

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!

Re: ME firmware updates

i know a w510 is old and its not on the list.  If i disable AMT and VT in the BIOS would that help with this issue?

Re: ME firmware updates

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

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