Default Gigabyte begins rolling out BIOS updates to close Intel AMT hole

Remember that nasty exploit from a couple of months ago in Intel's Active Management Technology? In short, if your machine was already configured for remote administration, it could be vulnerable to an exploit that essentially gives an attacker complete and total control of the machine at a sub-OS level. The security hole can be closed off with a motherboard firmware update, but the exploit affects many older machines that may not be getting firmware updates. That's not the case for owners of Gigabyte boards, though. The company just announced that it will be issuing security-focused firmware updates for affected boards going back at least as far as the 8-series chipsets.
