Gigabyte and Lenovo servers impacted by common BMC firmware flaws


announced that it was ending support for products running EMS firmware, and switching to the AMI MegaRAC SP-X firmware platform instead. The company began releasing server motherboard firmware updates to replace the BMC firmware with the new AMI MegaRAC SP-X. Gigabyte’s decision came after Vertiv itself announced on April 1, 2019, that it was ending support for the MergePoint EMS firmware platform. So, basically, Gigabyte customers can protect themselves by installing the new AMI-based firmware, when available.
