    So after two years of no further BIOS updates there's now an "ME update tool" package on the "other OS" section of downloads for my Asus Haswell board, but the package only contains MS-windows executable bundle... Awesome.

    At least I'm now aware that I'm missing a security update from Asus.

    Not running Fedora here, but thanks Richard / Red Hat for the inspiration to check!

        But there isn't any ME upgrading support from fwupd since that comes down to needing a vendor-supplied BIOS/firmware update.

        I grab updates from there and flash without problems; even took my ME firmware from 11.0 to 11.6

          I pretty sure it will run under FreeDOS. Did you tried it?

            Fantastic idea to use firmware from some random website NOT.

              I never said it was a good idea nor even recommended. However, I use that site all the time to update ME firmware across multiple devices without problem.

              The ME firmware and tools also do checks on the firmware file, so unless you can somehow get past those checks, you aren't flashing modified ME firmware.

                That's a relatively reputable place (it's well-known, at least in my circles), but yeah, I agree it's still a WTF NO.
