Recently, Eclypsium, a security firm published an experiment about a large tech company’s cloud services. The company they tested was the tech giant, IBM. The security firm rented an IBM server and then altered the company’s firmware. They hid the changes even after the renting period was over. This exercise demonstrated a possible issue with IBM’s services.
Since the experiment, IBM has changed some of it practices. IBM claims to now carefully wipe each server. They are also forcing all BMCs, to reflash with factory firmware before they are used by new customers.
