I ran Intel's IME firmware bug detection tool on my Lenovo T570 today,
and it said that my laptop is vulnerable and to contact my vendor. So I
went to Lenovo's website and found patches...for Windows only. I'm
going to bet that Lenovo won't release Linux patches, or bootable CDs
with firmware patches, etc.

Out of curiosity, how are others addressing things like this? Do I
really have to swap out my hard drive with a Windows version to install
the patch, and then revert back to my nice safe Linux home afterwards?

I remember doing one on an old Intel Q35 chipset board.

Check in the BIOS which IME you have and download the patch from Intel. Sometimes they have linux support and sometimes DOS support so you can use a bootable USB. Make sure you don't try to install the wrong firmware because if you do, you're gonna have a bad time!


I found this interesting.
