    Thx! At least we are getting somewhere

    A check on my system shows no 'ME' folder under 'Intel', which I suspect is due to me not installing the full software package?, something of which I never do, as I like to just install driver only, and update driver only.

    Now I wonder, if I created this folder with relevant info, would problem would be solved?, or if some kind soul could share as a reg file, that would be even better

    What stichcs said about is this safe, should of been better asked is this STABLE!

    Look don't take me wrong anyone, I'm not saying if there's some really bad security issues/exploits going on, then we shouldn't be looking at doing an update.

    What concerns me is this, I'm Geek enough to know that I don't need to jump the second an update comes out, running around like the house was on fire.

    There's also something everyone here, I'm wondering if you realize or not? This is suppose to be a Security Update, correct?

    Security first has to start with you, the end-user, firewalls, antivirus, malware protection etc...

    If you don't have proper security first in place with your system, then all the updates in the world aren't going to help, so I hope you understand that.

    I have not jumped on this update, because I know nothing about it, does anyone know anything about this ME security update and what it entails?

    Are any of you old enough to know the stories of Microsoft, in the days, going back many years, when all the so called security updates everyone jumped on were so bad, that Microsoft had to put out updates for the updates.

    Look don't take my word for it, but if you continue jumping on things right when they come out, sooner or later, one of these updates is going to bite you in the ass, and you'll wish you didn't.

    So for not knowing anything about me, I can tell you this, in 20 years of computing, I have never jumped when something came out, and sometimes I never even updated it. I actually also only ran Windows 7 with only SP1 in it for years and I've never ever had a problem ever in computing with my boxes.

    Experience, Education, Knowledge, these are your best weapons of security to have and use, not software updates all the time, until you know exactly what is going on, and what that means for you, and if it's really so important.

    I'm not saying this is true for all updates, but there are updates that will be released by companies, as an example that are better suited to a particular usage of the computer, like a server, vs workstation, and the type of setup of the computer, software it's running, and how it's being used. Hopefully this makes a little sense, because I have seen updates over the years from Microsoft as example that had nothing to do with anything I needed on my computer, therefore I never installed them. Bottom Line, some updates address a problem related to a specific situation, that isn't always the needs of just a Home end-user. Remember, software from these companies like this ME are also rolled out for the Server, Business and Corporate world too...

    So can someone please enlighten us as to what this update is for, I haven't had a chance to look into this, if anyone has an URL, please post it?

    What the **** do you really mean by what you are writing? You just download the updated ME driver and the update tool and run it. Your post is rubbish!

    Asus (and me) Don't really care what you choose to do or not. This update is for....and now I am quoting from ASUS support page: " Intel has identified security issue that could potentially place impacted platform at risk". If you don't understand what it says you need to learn English.

    And you are? The topic is running out of proportions when people can't make these two updates work. You don't have to be a rocket science to install these two updates. There is nothing wrong with the updates. If you just follow the guide that comes with the updates you have no issues.

    Click the MEI update and install... and then the Update Tool. Restart and update done!
    If you get some kind of error and files missing the problem is with your windows configuration and how you install software. If you install third party drivers you just can't blame ASUS if the updates fail. If you don't have a Maximus Hero VIII motherboard and try to install the updates you will get errors. Not ASUS problem.....your problem.

    HELLO EVERYONE, THIS IS ONLY THE DRIVER! All you have to do is uninstall the older version from the control panel and install the new version, instead of messing with some update tool...

    Also it's my understanding that versions in the system vs BIOS numbers do not have to match 100% the same, meaning you are on 11.7x under system and bios is all.

    Also there is even newer versions of ME, so when everyone is grabbing this, thinking it's a newer version it's not...

    People might want to join this forum and start talking to some of the ME pros over there, and have a look at this;

    https://www.win-raid.com/t596f39-Int...tem-Tools.html


    emsir I read what it says and it doesn't tell us anything, other then saying.

    security issue that could potentially place impacted platform at risk...

    There is also the word there ---> potentially, and this doesn't mean anything IS going to happen...

    Hey don't take me wrong, here's the thing, Intel, Asus, MS, etc., they act like consumers are stupid, because if you walked into a BIG BUSINESS IT department and said this to them trust me, no one is going to take any of this serious without knowing DETAILS...

    So unfortunately this is not telling us anything, it's rubbish!

    Security is not just about the updates in a system, it's about the 'Line of Defense' that is set in place...

    Meaning, you run a hardware firewall, then this so called security situation, someone is going to have to get past that in order to compromise said exploit on the box...

    SORRY not trying to hijack post, seriously we need to be asking Intel & Asus what this is really all about with some detailed information, Asus should of posted some detailed information in the downloads section...

    In the meantime I suggest everyone look at the link below; > INTEL-SA-00086 (CVE-2017-5705)

    Don't worry, just skip rubbish. I'm glad your ME FW update went smoothly, but that's not the case for everyone and those cases are, of course, good opportunities to learn strange new things.

    And to recap what I said before, not even sure why Asus made it seem like to the Newbies that they needed the update tool.

    You don't need to fart with this update tool, ME is just drivers only, so uninstall old version from the control panel and install new version, simple, safe and done!
