Forskere finder Glaring Intel ME-sikkerhedsfejl, detekteringsværktøj til virksomheds outs



Security researchers have found glaring security flaws with Intel Management Engine, the on-chip micro SoC that, besides governing the functionality of the processor, provides on-chip management and security features. These security flaws render 'potentially millions' of PCs and notebooks, based on Intel processors, according to the researchers. Intel on Monday released a Detection Tool application that lets you identify vulnerabilities in the Management Engine of your Intel processor-powered PC, and suggests updates to Intel Management Engine drivers, or points to BIOS updates from your PC manufacturer.

Opdateringer til Intel ME er specifikke for TXE 3.0 (pålidelig udførelsesmotorversion 3.0), der er vist på processorer baseret på 'Skylake', 'Kaby Lake' og 'Coffee Lake' mikroarkitekturer på tværs af klient- og virksomhedsmarkedssegmenter, og Atom-processorer frigivet i de sidste tre år. Intel uddybede denne sikkerhedsfejl yderligere under Security Advisory 86 og frigav SA-00086 Detection Tool.
