RCE (Remote Code execution) vulnerabilities have been discovered in several remote management features on Intel-based PCs. This is a machine that has been circulating during the last seven years (around 2010), which may have caused an attacker to remotely control a machine.

According to Intel's report, the RCE vulnerability (CVE-2017-5689) is embedded in technologies such as Intel's Management Engine (ME), such as Active Management Technology (AMT), Small Business Technology (SBT) ), And in Intel Standard Manageability (ISM).

This feature usually allows administrators to remotely access machines remotely over the network. (Via 16992 port or 16993) of the organization.

These functions are only available in enterprise-level solutions. And most of them are chipsets. For server Intel says it will not affect consumer PCs.

This vulnerability is the result is that. Attackers are able to sneak into the machine and do bad things. For hardware systems such as Increase the temperature of the heater, install non-detectable virtual malware. This threat affects the management software of Intel systems from versions 6.x, 7.x, 8.x 9.x, 10.x, 11.0, 11.5, and 11.6 are used for Intel's AMT, ISM, and SBT platforms.

Intels notice that this vulnerability is quite dangerous and recommends patches by urgency. For information on Intel, click here.
