First, I believe everything in this news item beyond the first paragraph is from Intel's update, so the wording is from them. Thanks @Hilbert Hagedoorn for posting it nonetheless.
We believe that assigning CVE ID’s and publicly documenting internally found vulnerabilities helps our customers to accurately assess risk, prioritize, and deploy updates.
And at the same time, you have to get them yourselves:
We recommend you check with your system manufacturers and operating system vendors to determine how to obtain these updates.
So yeah... thanks for letting us know (since we even bother to reach out for tech sites) that we have to do any patching ourselves? Great customer support. So... when's Zen 4k going to release?

The Vulnerabilities Team have certainly been busy. Could be some job opportunities there.

Some lawyers woke up today with a LOT of stuff to, suing people and companies, make some cash out of it. IMHO, Intel, why oh why wouldn't you go open source on Management Engine or disable it completely and develop some layered security mechanism which can me improved constantly by a huge open team? This applies to AMD, of course, they still have PSP active on their CPU and uses security by obscurity. I guess we will never have something good and cheap. We pay with out data and our privacy.

Haha well, it's not really security by obscurity anymore when everyone malicious knows it's available. I guess the "obscurity" part comes into play considering AMD's relatively low market share, and, the amount of viable use-cases for PSP.

One word sums this up OOOOOF.

You're halfway right. I'll explain my point. Yes, hardware has vulnerabilities, some discovered, some don't. Every modern processor has something that can be escalated, doesn't matter the brand. To vast majority of worldwide users, hardly matters. Ignorance is bliss, right? But to those who matters, the important thing is HOW you deal with your brand, hardware and vulnerabilities. Intel didn't handle it like pros, they tried to smear everyone, and launched some shady tactics at AMD. AMD took it like it should, and did their thing. Is AMD the hero here? Hardly. But how they managed their problems in the eyes of the consumer matters. It's about perception.

Yeah, in the quality assurance department.
