Re: Update vulnerable Intel ME on Linux

Don't know if you all are still interested on the topic, but just to be sure, latest BIOS seems to have fixed it for me, you can download the ISO and extract it with eltorito to make a img and then boot from USB or CDROM.

I do agree tho, Lenovo should make access with Linux a bit more accesible, at least for urgent and critical updates.
