Istraživači pronalaze sjajne nedostatke sigurnosti Intel ME, tvrtke alata za otkrivanje



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.

Ažuriranja Intel ME-a specifična su za TXE 3.0 (motor pouzdanog izvođenja verzije 3.0), koji se nalazi na procesorima temeljenim na mikro-arhitekturama 'Skylake,' Kaby Lake 'i' Coffee Lake ', u svim segmentima tržišta klijenata i poduzeća, i Atomske procesore puštene u posljednje tri godine. Intel je ovaj sigurnosni propust još više zakrčio sigurnosnim savjetodavstvom 86 i objavio alat za otkrivanje SA-00086.
