    Has anyone checked with free Kaspersky Tool If we are affected by ASUS update hack?

    Recent reports suggest that there was a supply chain malware attack where hackers spread malware via the ASUS Update server spoofing genuine ASUS certifcates.

    Kasperky Has released a tool to check if a particular system is infected by this hack.

    I checked mine using the tool. It said I wasn't affected. I'm guessing they have some sort of MAC address database of affected systems. I guess Asus is still not commenting on the hack. Any bets on whether or not they actually address it?

    I am too skeptic about an official reply.As this kind of attack also harms a credibility of a company security wise as it seems genuine certificate was being used.Lets see how long it takes to be addressed.
