    What begins? You need to begin a round of updating Epyc servers' firmwares? I guess nobody would be looking forward to such a task, huh.

    I can't make out what you're trying to say, but I'm glad you tried.

    Better than dead silence.

    That makes two of us since I also couldn't figure out what it is that you believe will begin.

    What I am trying to say is that I just don't feel comfortable when majorities for a specific idea are formed, and invariably all dissent is assumed to need quashing.

    It's just no fun because then the primary purpose of ideas is lost.

    Aside from already being patched, the good news is this is really only an issue for VMs, and from what I can tell, shouldn't really have any impact on performance.

    I don't think even you understood what you said there...

    Saying it like that felt more appropriate than explaining nepotism.

    You're still correct, though. I find having to put thoughts in to specific, expected words can at times remove meaning and effect.

    Despite i like the image, it doesn't began at all, every CPU (or any computer part) have fail, bug, security issue. (yes even an apple :) or a Ryzen :) ).
    it's not new, so patching/update is a good thing, it mean that they are working on it.

    It is so serious that it depends only how the Linux VM guest is set regarding the user rights.
    And the fix is easy, they simply discard the ECC values the user may be able to send
    The only real bother is this. The fix is regenerate the PDH keys.
