ASUS to provide BIOS updates addressing Intel Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) vulnerabilities, also known as ZombieLoad, RIDL, and Fallout

    ASUS is aware that a new sub-class of speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities in Intel CPUs, called Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS), also known as ZombieLoad, RIDL, and Fallout, may allow information disclosure.

    For more information, please review the security updates posted by Intel below:

    Intel states that selected 8th and 9th Generation Intel® Core™ processors, as well as the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family, are not vulnerable to MDS. If you are using one of these processors, no further action is necessary.
    For other Intel processors, ASUS is working closely with Intel to provide a solution in a forthcoming BIOS update. We recommend owners of affected products update both the BIOS and operating system as soon as these mitigations are available. Please find our first-wave model list below and download the appropriate BIOS update from the ASUS Support website (https://www.asus.com/support/). More details, including affected systems, will be added to this document as they become available.
