Security Advisory - Intel 3, 4, 5 & 6th gen graphics driver

2020-04-24, 23:04 PM

The last two drivers published for Intel 4 & 5th gen graphics on the Intel download site were for security fixes.  

 

Given that hacking has exploded during the corona stay-at-home order (my elderly next door neighbor was hit with a ransom demand just yesterday - and we spent hours scanning her system and changing passwords), I need to ensure that my systems are fully patched.  I've been able to install this driver below on two systems, a ThinkCentre M73 desktop (HD 4600) and HP laptop (HD 4400), however critically this driver will not work correctly on a 3rd gen X1 Carbon laptop (HD 5500.)  It causes white streaks and occasional blinks.  The driver published on the Lenovo support page is 20.19.15.4963 - Aug 2018.

Lenovo published an updated driver (20.19.15.5126 - 02 Jun 2020) with the security fixes for the X1 Carbon 3rd gen.  I did see a few white streaks on the display after installing, but after deleting all the prior graphics drivers (a considerable number - took a while with reboots), is running problem-free.  This driver is also for the following systems:

Another update from Intel with security fixes.  I updated a desktop and laptop with the driver downloaded directly from Intel yesterday, both are running well.
