At least 47,000 Supermicro servers are vulnerable to attack and compromise over the Internet via several security vulnerabilities in a remote monitoring and management component on the systems.
Supermicro has urged organizations using its X9, X10, and X11 platforms to block the port through which attacks can be carried out while the company works on getting a security fix issued.
The vendor has also asked impacted organizations to ensure that the vulnerable component is operating on an isolated private network and is not directly exposed to the Internet. The precaution “would reduce but not eliminate the identified exposure,” Supermicro said in an advisory Tuesday.
