New BMC Supply Chain Vulnerabilities Impact Servers from Dozens of Vendors

Supply Chain Chain

The MegaRAC Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) software from American Megatrends (AMI) contains three security vulnerabilities that could allow remote code execution on vulnerable servers.

Firmware and hardware security firm Eclypsium stated in a report shared with The Hacker News that “the impact of exploiting these vulnerabilities include remote control of compromised servers, remote deployment of malware, ransomware and firmware implants, and server physical damage (bricking). BMCs are privileged independent systems that are used in servers to manage the host operating system and low-level hardware settings, even when the machine is off.
