Intel fixes 73 vulnerabilities in many products


 Intel released security updates during the second patch round of this year that fix 73 vulnerabilities in a large number of products. Forty of the vulnerabilities were discovered by Intel itself, while 29 were reported through the chip giant's bug bounty program.


The updates include the Intel NUC, Thunderbolt controller, Wi-Fi driver, Rapid Storage Technology software, SSD Data Center Tool, Driver and Support Assistant (DSA), and various processors from the chip giant. Through the vulnerabilities, an attacker can, among other things, increase his rights to an already compromised system, retrieve information or cause a denial of service.


In the first half of this year, Intel fixed a total of 132 vulnerabilities. 56 of these were in Intel's network and bluetooth software. An overview of all security bulletins can be found on this page .
