    "In mei 2018 zou Gigabyte op de hoogte gebracht zijn, maar het bedrijf zou gemeld hebben dat zijn producten niet getroffen zijn door de kwetsbaarheden." - tweakers.net
    "In May 2018, Gigabyte would have been notified, but the company would have reported that its products were not affected by the vulnerabilities." - Google translate

    Google translate seems to have completely changed the meaning to imply that Gigabyte was not contacted.
    "would have been, but" = "wasn't" + (excuse)
    A more accurate translation can be derived from the bleepingcomputer story.
    -SecureAuth contacted GIGABYTE on April 24, 2018-
    -Gigabyte responded on April 30, 2018
    -in May 2018 Gigabyte asked for details and guidance to confirm the vulnerabilities
    -Ultimately Gigabyte claimed their software was not affected

    IMO it should read like this:
    "On April 24th Gigabyte was notified, but the company had released a new version of the software on July 16th that was no longer affected."
