Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 700083

Synopsis

The remote host is running a vulnerable version of Intel Active Management Technology and is affected by a Remote Code Execution (RCE) attack vector.

Description

Versions of Intel Active Management Technology 10.x prior to 10.0.55.3000 are affected by a flaw that is triggered as it insecurely performs read and write operations. This may allow a remote attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code depending on the Intel software installed, or a local attacker to gain privileges in other configurations.

Solution
