Intel has announced that it will be addressing 77 security vulnerabilities this month. According to the blue team, 67 of the 77 vulnerabilities were internally found by them.
As Intel stated:
“We believe that assigning CVE ID’s and publicly documenting internally found vulnerabilities helps our customers to accurately assess risk, prioritize, and deploy updates. By the time you are reading this blog post, mitigations for many of these issues will have already been propagated throughout the ecosystem through the IPU process. At the same time, the external researchers who reported the remaining issues to us have all been good partners in working with us on coordinated vulnerability disclosure (CVD).”
Intel recommends users to check with their system manufacturers and operating system vendors to determine how to obtain these updates.

Intel concluded that it continuously improves the techniques available to address such issues and appreciate the academic researchers who have partnered with them.
Kudos to our reader “Metal Messiah” for bringing this to our attention!
