Another firmware update is available, FBKTCLA (2017/11/28). It´s a "security" update. Some questions:
How important these "security updates" really are?
What type of security do they improve? It is related to Secure Boot? To ramsonware?
Is it worth taking the risk to install these updates?

Recent security updates are mostly related to Intel Management Engine firmware which is speedily patched as soon as another huge hole in its security is discovered. These are very serious, in my opinion.
See Intel-SA-00086 to check whether your current version of Intel ME is vulnerable.
