MSI releases Intel TXE 3.0 BIOS update.

Motherboard maker MSI has made available BIOS update for its 100, 200 and 300-series gaming and pro-branded motherboards that upgrades the platform with the latest Intel trusted execution engine (TXE) 3.0 security update.

MSI stated that the update rectifies recent

security compromises that have been identified and addressed by Intel, but the statement

didn't cite the specific security report.

"According to a recent Intel comprehensive security

review, security vulnerabilities are identified and could potentially allow

attackers to gain unauthorised access to platform features, secrets, and third

party secrets protected by Intel TXE. Therefore, Intel has validated and

released Intel TXE 3.0 updates to address the encountered security situations."

Intel has had several security flaws of this nature

in recent months, with motherboard manufacturers releasing BIOS updates

addressing issues with Intel's active management technology (AMT), Intel standard manageability (ISM), and small business technology (SBT). However, this new

threat appears to be fresh, with 300-series motherboards only arriving

recently, and MSI appears to be among the first to offer the update.
