    eDellRoot Certificate Problem: Patch Available To Fix It Now ?


    Hello,

    Read about the Dell eDellRoot Certificate vulnerability problem.
    Also, a second similar one/problem, apparently.

    Really hard for me to go thru All the steps that have been posted to remove it.
    Have a bit of trouble even using the basic stuff now, at my age.

    Any idea when they will issue a simple one or two click "Patch" to fix it, like I believe they said they would ?

    Is it available now ? Where ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    You can find it here.

    For those who don’t want to use the pushed patch, instructions for removing eDellRoot manually is a 17-step process that takes up 11 Word document pages, including screenshots. The patch - Click Here – can also be downloaded.

    Hi,

    The Patch you suggested worked well, and fast.
    Sure a lot easier than following 17 steps !

    Any idea when the new Patch for the new problem will be available ?

    Will it be posted here ? Where ?

    Thanks again for all the help,
    Bob

    Glad you got it sorted.

    As soon as a patch is available for the second problem, I or someone will post it. There is a fix for the second problem available now, but thus far it involves manually removing it. Have a look at this article if you want to give it a try.

    Here's an update for you Robert:

    Dell said that customers should take steps to remove the certificate from their laptops, offering instructions on how to do that manually. Starting Tuesday, it also plans to push a software update to computers to check for the certificate and then remove it.
