"Meltdown" System ROM Update for ProLiant Gen8

Per this post by HPE on this vulnerability and updates:

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-a00039267en_us

For ProLiant Gen8 series servers, update to a System ROM version dated 12/12/2017

I have looked under downloads for several different Gen8 servers I have and there is nothing as recent as 12/12/2017 listed there. Anyone else see something different?

Am I missing something? 

Thanks!

I believe that might be a misprint and should probably read 1/12/18. I think this link will provide more definitive info for you.

Looking at the table, for Gen8, all those were listed as going to be released 1/12/18.

Re: "Meltdown" System ROM Update for ProLiant Gen8

In that article referenced (http://h22208.www2.hpe.com/eginfolib/securityalerts/SCAM/Side_Channel_Analysis_Method.html) I see Gen10 AMD based servers getting a firmware update, but not any Gen8 - for Gen8 I only see Intel based servers getting patches.

Anyone know if any Gen8 AMD servers will be getting a patch?
