Intel Fixes vPro Security Flaw
Thousands of enterprise PCs could potentially be vulnerable to a security flaw in Intel's vPro processors, enabling hackers to take control of computers remotely, Intel said this week. The company said it has released a firmware update to address the issue, and expected PC makers to make updates available starting this week. Intel's vPro processors are popular with business customers that purchase and deploy large fleets of computers. The flaw can potentially allow attackers to gain control of the manageability features on these products, according to Intel.
