AMD has begun pushing out a firmware fix for its EPYC server processors that addresses the way the chips provide Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV). Left unpatched, an attacker could leverage the vulnerability to recover a secure key, which could then be used to access an isolated virtual machine (VM) on a targeted system.SEV is a feature that uses one security key per VM to isolate guests and the hypervisor from one another. Those keys are managed by the AMD Secure Processor. It is a hardwar...
