Can someone related to 'Security' report the vulnerabilities to Acer?

Reporting link is this and major vulnerabilities can be found here. Not all of them are for Acer laptops, but things like ME, RST, ProSet Wireless, etc. needs to be patched. Some are too new and most of the models from 2017 (don't know for 2018/19) haven't received the fixes for them. The current mitigations/fixes by Acer can be found here, which are older.

    Not quite sure what you're asking of the ACER community users on this forum? We're not ACER employees or contractors here aside from the moderators.  Jack E/NJ

    I thought maybe someone would be a Security Researcher here in the community.

    I hope they DONT enforce plundervolt fixing.
    What do you mean? The fix degrades performance?

    This subject should be better solved by contacting acer support directly and make them aware to pass it onto the dev team 😊

    Your issue could get better coverage and more answers if posted in forums than in a message to me.

    Intel has patched them but recommends getting it from OEMs since they modify it for each model.
