Intel Releases 29 Advisories to Describe 73 Vulnerabilities Affecting Its Products


According to Intel, more than half of the bugs were discovered internally and 40% were reported through its bug bounty program.

The newly addressed issues represent more than half of the 132 potential vulnerabilities the company patched since the beginning of 2021 — 56 of them in graphics, networking, and Bluetooth components.

The most severe of the newly addressed flaws is a high-severity incomplete cleanup issue (CVE-2021-24489) in Intel VT-d products that could allow an authenticated user to enable escalation of privilege via local access.
