Intel me 8 1 updating tool
Betteridge’s Law of Headlines states, “Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no.” This law remains unassailable.
However, recent claims have called into question a black box hidden deep inside every Intel chipset produced in the last decade.
If the system is vulnerable however, you have one or two options depending on whether the manufacturer of the device has published an updated firmware already.
Vulnerability "Affected products: The issue has been observed in Intel manageability firmware versions 6.x, 7.x, 8.x 9.x, 10.x, 11.0, 11.5, and 11.6 for Intel® Active Management Technology, Intel® Small Business Technology, and Intel® Standard Manageability. Step 3: Intel highly recommends checking with your system OEM for updated firmware.
Vaio Update indicates new firmware version 126.96.36.1990 available for my model. When I used F/W Update Tool 188.8.131.5250 to update the Intel ME firmware, I got the follow error code: 11000. Please let me know why I am not able to upgrade the Intel ME firmware.
A recently disclosed vulnerability in Intel products using Intel Active Management Technology, Intel Small Business Technology, and Intel Standard Manageability gives attackers remote access to the manageability features supported by these products.
As a workaround, I created a Windows 10 Recovery Drive (on a USB stick) and copied the update to that USB stick.
So is there also a utility available to update the FW under Linux?
Note: Intel has published a guide to manually find out whether a system is vulnerable or not.
If the computer is not vulnerable, then you are done as there is nothing else to do.
Functionality may include monitoring, upgrading, repairing and maintaining compatible devices.
While you may use Intel's own advisory to find out if a computer system is vulnerable, it is easier to use the detection tool the company created and published for that instead.
