POWER6 Firmware - the POODLE updates PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

Sometime between last October (last time I checked) and today IBM decided to move nearly all the firmware support files related to POWER6. So, Iam not able (today) to update the POWER6 firmware table with the latest info. Assuming I find public URL's for the html information I will update the POWER6 firmware sheet again.

Take Note: There is new firmware - mainly to address POODLE concerns it seems (check your self via FixCentral ) - rather than functional and/or bug fixes.

Power Systems Firmware Tables - a thing of the past? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

Back from away and I see that IBM has decided to remove it's firmware tables from the POWER code matrix pages - perhaps making my firmware tables (POWER6 and POWER7 ) all that more useful.

For the time being IBM does not seem to be providing an easy to read table - instead you must go into FixCentral and/or go to FLRT (Fix Level Release Tool). FLRT is a great tool btw - just need to see if it gives me the info I am looking for - easily!

For POWER8 I am going to have to work out something - and now that I know there is nothing else I shall get to it sooner rather than later. Smile

A few weeks back I bought a new system for myself - to speed things up a bit mainly. The old situation was ugly to look at, but I could keep the systems on and my wife did not complain about the noise

I have submitted this to my BLOG - SecuringAIX , tweeted it, and now adding it here for good measure.

How long this has been live - I cannot say, but FLRT - Fix Level Recommendation Tool has a Security Tab with recent - and historical security patches, with CVE numbers, etc.

All easy to find right here !
