Intel on Tuesday distributed 11 new security advisories, disclosing 16 total vulnerabilities that affect various software or firmware products.

None of the bugs was deemed critical, but there were seven high-level issues, including an escalation of privilege in Linux Administrative Tools for Intel Network Adapters. Carrying a CVSS base score of 8.2 (the highest among this month's Intel's vulnerabilities), the flaw, designated CVE-2019-0159, is caused by insufficient memory protection in versions prior to 24.3.

The remaining high-level bugs consist of five escalation of privilege vulnerabilities in NUC firmware, and an improper conditions check in certain processors that can cause escalation of privilege and information disclosure.
