    How to see if my PC is vulnerable, and how to fix it

    I have an older ASUS motherboard, Maximus VIII Hero Alpha with Intel core i7 6700K processor.
    I've been reading about the Intel ME vulnerabilities and must admit, I am totally lost.
    Can someone PLEASE tell me how to check to see if my PC is vulnerable or not,
    and ALSO what steps to take if it is. Please use laymans terms so that I can understand.
    Step by step would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    You can download the tool from here
    https://www.intel.com/content/www/us.../software.html
    Most likely if you have not updated the BIOS and MEI drivers as well as windows updates you will be vulnerable.
    Good network security prevails over all of that. If they cant get into the network they cant get to your machine.
