How can I protect myself from the TPM vulnerability that can allow Security Feature Bypass?
A security vulnerability exists in certain Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chipsets that could allow attackers to bypass security features. Acer is working closely with Microsoft to address the situation and will begin releasing firmware updates to fix the security vulnerability soon.
The vulnerability weakens public key resistance against attacks that are used to deduce the corresponding private key. After an attacker determines the private key, it can be used to mimic the entity associated with the public/private key pair.
Although the vulnerability is not in Microsoft Windows, but is in TPM chipset firmware, Microsoft is releasing several Windows security updates to address the vulnerability. In addition, Acer will be releasing firmware updates for impacted models to address the vulnerability.
