Intel Updates NUC Firmware to Patch High Severity Bug
#1
Quote:Intel today released a firmware update for multiple NUC Kit models to patch a high-severity issue that could be exploited to achieve privilege escalation, cause a denial-of-service (DoS) condition, or information disclosure.

The full list of products in Intel's [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] affected by CVE-2019-11140 includes the following models:
