Intel rolled out nine security advisories for a variety of components associated with its processors and graphics drivers, with four having a high severity rating and the remainder medium.

The high-rated advisory for Intel graphics drivers contains 17 CVEs, which if left unpatched and exploited could lead to escalation of privilege, denial of service and information disclosure. Intel is recommending updating to the latest driver version.

The advisory
for Intel NUC firmware only has a single issue, CVE-2020-0530, to correct an escalation
of privilege.

An advisory was also issued for Bluez, which is
the official Linux Bluetooth stack, for potential escalation of privilege and denial
of service. The update patching this vulnerability can be found at

A warning was also rolled out for Intel Smart Sound Technology discussing an escalation of privilege problem. Affected products are 10th Generation Intel Core i7 processors, version 3431, and 8th Generation Intel Core processors, version 3349.

The medium-rated advisories covered Intel’s FPGA programmable acceleration card N3000, Optain DC persistent memory module management, Snoop Assisted L1D, Intel processors and Max 10 FPGA.
