back to article Intel: Listen up, you NUC-leheads! Mini PCs and compute sticks just got a major security fix

Hot on the heels of Patch Tuesday fixes from Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, and SAP, Intel has dropped its monthly security bundle to address a series of seven CVE-listed vulnerabilities in its firmware and software.

    Different NUC's have different BIOS versions, they're not all v066. All the models we use seem to have got an update in the last few days though.

    Typical of Intel drivers

    Intel have long shipped drivers with lousy, low-quality code. It's clearly an organization that does not care about this aspect of its products. The initial code is shoddy; then under sufficient pressure (complaints from big customers, threat of vulnerability disclosure) they'll make an update available, but leave it to system and OS vendors to push it to customers.

    And I agree with Dan 55 - their website is rubbish.

    Should I ever buy another PC, I'm going with AMD. I've had it with Intel.

    Clearly, I need to drink more.
