Critical Update From Intel. INTEL-SA-00086

January 4, 2018

A critical security flaw in intel products has been discovered.  All computers should run the detection tool to see if they need to be patched.  An attacker could gain unauthorized access.

This includes scenarios where a successful attacker could:


  • Load and execute arbitrary code outside the visibility of the user and operating system.

  • Cause a system crash or system instability.

  • Impersonate the ME/SPS/TXE, thereby impacting local security feature attestation validity.


If you need help running the detection tool or want us to patch your computers, please call the TIC Help Desk to schedule - 617 884-1086 x1
