Identify Intel Processor Flaws in Your Environment with New Security Vulnerability Detection Tool

From the myITforum TipLine:

The recently uncovered flaw in certain Intel processors that existed for close 10 years is now being addressed in new tools for IT administrators.

The INTEL-SA-00075 Discovery Tool can be used by local users or an IT administrator to determine whether a system is vulnerable to the exploit documented in Intel Security Advisory INTEL-SA-00075. It is offered in two versions. The first is an interactive GUI tool that, when run, discovers the hardware and software details of the device and provides indication of risk assessment. This version is recommended when local evaluation of the system is desired. The second version of the Discovery Tool is a console executable that saves the discovery information to the Windows registry and/or to an XML file. This version is more convenient for IT administrators wishing to perform bulk discovery across multiple machines to find systems to target for firmware updates or to implement mitigations.
