I found a video about a Major exploit out at the moment for some Motherboards like mine. Here is a link to the Video on ThioJoe's channel.

Hi I looked on Gigabytes's website and can't find where to download the new drivers. I downloaded a software called "GIGABYTE Download Center" and it says there is no outdated drivers found even though it says I am at risk in the screenshot above. Can someone please link me to the driver updater, Thanks in advance. :)

They haven't published a new driver yet.

It's the same with virtually everybody else's drivers.

I had no idea that guy was making legit videos now. I blocked his channel on YouTube long ago, due to all the stupid scam videos he was making, so have not seen a video of his for quite some time. I'll keep him blocked, due to his old videos.

Wait for your OEM to release an update. Usually IME comes bundled in the form of a BIOS update so I would keep my eyes on that and perhaps follow this thread. I would really not try to flash anything other than what the manufacturer has released and approved because code like the one in ME can brick your system.

Drivers simply won't fix the issue. You need wither FW upgrade or BIOS w/ ME update for the exploit to be fixed. If newer drivers for MEI aren't available on OEM site then disable(even setting to manual will do) MEI services like Intel Dynamic app. loader, Intel Management and Security Application Local Management Service for added protection.
