I read at the Asus site that said my board has a vulnerability.
I was looking at the file to update the BIOS or firmware. The PC is running well so I am not going to do anything. I was chatting with Asus and they sent me a .cap file to rectify this if I wanted to. I had to rename it and send it to a flash drive. The vulnerability was noted in the file just beneath my firmware update file but did not elaborate.
I could not illicit any information out of Asus except to send the file with a caveat we all know about bricking the machine.
I have a Tuf z 390 plus gaming (WiFi) board and although I will not damage it with an updated BIOS, I am obviously concerned about this weak spot.
Is there a way to secure the machine other than a combination file with the update? I know it states it should be installed with the upgrade simultaneously. It is under warranty with he builder for another year and also with Asus. Asus said they will assist anytime if the board has a problem.
I don't know if the builder should be involved or if I should leave it alone.
