    Updated with the Gigabyte Intel Update Utility (12/21/17) and the Powershell script shows still vulnerable.
    Apples and oranges.... again.
    Any BIOS update prior to 02 January is for the ME vulnerability(SA_00086), from 02 Jan on, will most likely be the one for these new exploits.
    PowerShell commands are for those(Meltdown and Spectre).

    Firmware update; BIOS update was done previously.

    If anyone read this post as it was before disregard it. I was mistakenly using SA00075 when I had success with the tool. My system is still vulnerable with SA00086 as can be seen below.

    It might cause problems. But if Intel and Microsoft think that most people are actually going to do the update on their own, then they're completely delusional.
    Yes, these companies MUST work to find PRACTICAL solutions for ORDINARY end users! Not just power users. I'm pretty
    savvy myself but I'm even confused with what I've been seeing as to how to remedy the issues.

    I'm glad that there are now class actions suits being started, however I'd be happier if the suits compelled chip makers to provide
    practical end user patches that even the most ordinary person can understand and apply to properly secure their systems.
    The end user should NOT have to go searching to various vendors for firmware updates if they bought an OEM system.

    Keep everything updated, that's it.

    OEM PC's come with software to get updates from the manufacturer. Anyone who has built thier own PC and doesn't know how to update the bios most likely has more serious issues to worry about.

    Mine is a custom pc that I ordered from PC specialist but Iím not tech savvy. I just wanted a decent gaming machine. But I think we should get more direct solutions from MS. I am totally confused by the intel management stuff. I decided Iíll try and update the BIOS but I canít do it. Obviously doing something wrong but Iíve followed all the instructions. And I lack the spare time to battle with it further. Microsoft can push the microcode updates at OS level from some of my readings. They need to do this. If they can detect hardware and push things like gpu updates down the windows update they can do it for processors too surely. And of course it all still is true that the vast majority of users have no idea what a BIOS is let alone will update it

    Did you try doing it through AI Suite 3?
    It's really easy:
    Select EZ Update,

    1. Then find your BIOS .cap file(make sure it has been unblocked in properties, and then unzipped)
    2. Then click update.

    Thanks. I may download that later but it sounds like the latest Microsoft KB broke AI suite 3 for many users after looking on their forum. So it could be an additional headache

    Scott, you can get a link to the new beta version of AI Suite3 here: Beta version of ASUS AI Suite that works with KB4056892 availabe - Windows 10 Forums

    When you go to the ROG post with the download links select the 2nd link in the first post. It's the Google Drive one.

    So far only one member has a problem installing it, but the rest of us are up and running.
