Aura Sync and Xtreme software contain vulnerabilities

Seven vulnerabilities

According to a security company called SecureAuth, two drivers from ASUS and Gigabyte contain vulnerabilities. These are bundled with tools that companies provide for motherboards and video cards.



In total there are seven vulnerabilities affecting five different software products. At the moment there are exploit codes for each of them. While many of them might still be unaddressed, we know already what an attacker might do. For example, different Gigabyte applications allow the execution of code, which can read/write data via the I/O ports.

At this time the vulnerable drivers come alongside the Aura Sync software (v1.07.22 and earlier), Gigabyte App Center (v1.05.21 and below), Aorus Graphics Engine (v1.33 and below), XTREME Engine utility (v1.25 and earlier), and OC Guru II (v2.08).

According to SecureAuth ASUS has been informed almost one year ago, the company has fixed just two of the three problems.
