IntelIntel reports a critical bug found in CSME and urges users to implement a repair, which is now available as soon as possible. The Intel Converged Engineer (CSME) security and management engine is a chipset subsystem that empowers Intel Active Management technologies. An error was detected in the CSME firmware by Intel security team. Should hackers exploit this error to start scaling privileges, denial of service and information leak attacks. This error, identified as CVE-2019-14598, has received a CVSS 8.2 base score, which is the highest severity score. Therefore the error is considered critical.

Intel has released a firmware update to mitigate the error affecting CSME versions prior to 12.0.49 (including only IoT: 12.0.56), 13.0.21 and 14.0.11.

Intel also recommends updating to CSME versions 12.0.49, 13.0.21, and 14.0.11 or later from the system manufacturer that is addressing these issues. It also advises IoT clients to use CSME version 12.0.55 to update to 12.0.56 or later provided by the manufacturer of the system that addresses these issues.

Another series of updates aims to resolve security issues found in Intel's RAID Web 2 (RWC2) and Web RAID 3 (RWC3) for Windows.
