Intel recommends that users of above Intel products update to the latest BIOS
version provided by the system manufacturer that addresses these issues.
These issues were found internally by Intel.
Intel, and nearly the entire technology industry, follows a disclosure practice
called Coordinated Disclosure, under which a cybersecurity vulnerability is
generally publicly disclosed only after mitigations are available.
