Yes, of course. BTW. This is what this BIOS update is supposed to fix:
- Updated Intel ME Firmware to address security advisory INTEL-SA-00118(CVE-2018-3627)
- Updated CPU microcode to address security advisory Intel Security Advisory INTEL-SA-00115 (CVE-2018-3639 & CVE-2018-3640)
BTW Ubuntu 18.04 is not affected.
BTW. I installed this driver manually: Download Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows® 10
and this one too: Drivers | GeForce
This fixed my driver issues.
This is another prime example why we need Intel to start providing generic drivers that can be easily installed on OEM devices as their "official" drivers are old and suck.
