    Intel Patches Security Vulnerability In Linux And Windows Drivers

    Are you aware that Intel has published a total of six advisories for security vulnerabilities impacting its products, including the Intel Processor Graphics on Windows and Linux?

    Out of the six security flaws, only one comes with a “high” severity rating. Four of them are rated as “medium,” while last one has a “low” rating.

    The high-severity vulnerability is an escalation of privilege that exists in the Intel VTune Amplifier for Windows, and Intel says the bug was discovered internally by company employees.

    To resolve the flaw, users must update Intel VTune Amplifier for Windows to version 8 or newer.
