Lenovo: if you value your server, block Microsoft's November security update

Ummmm....yeah...going to read this one.

Lenovo server customers should disable Windows Update and apply a UEFI update to avoid Microsoft’s November security freezing their systems.

The world’s third largest server-maker advised the step after revealing that 19 configurations of its x M5 and M6 rack, as well as its x6 systems are susceptible.

Lenovo’s machines are crashing upon installation of Microsoft's Security Update MS16-140 for Windows Server 2016, 2012 R2 and 2012.

Lenovo here said: "Do not install the Microsoft Windows Server 2016, 2012 R2 or 2012 November update before applying fixed UEFI firmware as specified in the 'Solution' section.

"Replacing the system board will not fix the issue."
