Dell Client Statement on Intel ME/TXE Advisory (INTEL-SA-00086)


Overview

Dell is aware of the Intel® ME/TXE Elevation of Privileges vulnerabilities. Dell is diligently working to update the affected platforms. Firmware update details for these platforms will be added to this document as they become available and we recommend customers update their systems to the latest Intel Management Engine Firmware and iCLS Software by downloading the patched releases as they become available. We encourage customers to review Intel’s Security Advisory for information, including appropriate identification and mitigation measures.

In addition, Dell highly recommends system owners ensure that systems are physically secured where possible, and follow good security practices to ensure that only authorized personnel have hands-on access to devices.

Patch Guidance

These patches may also include the firmware component of the Speculative Execution and Indirect Branch Prediction Side Channel Analysis Method Advisory (INTEL-SA-00088), please refer to the Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities page for complete details on Dell PCs and Thin Client.

Per Intel’s guidance on January 22nd, Dell removed all BIOS updates from our support pages marked as "Suspended Releases" while Intel conducted root cause analysis for reported reboot issues and unpredictable system behavior.

Starting February 8th, Dell has made available previously-removed BIOS updates for various CPUs. As Intel continues to provide production microcode for other processor generations, Dell will release BIOS updates for the listed affected platforms.

All customers with an affected platform should download the latest BIOS update listed below.

Notes:
  • Prior to installing the MEFW or BIOS releases, please ensure Windows Updates are up to date.
