The new Surface Pro 3 update is provided without Infineon chip security fix


Microsoft has released an update for Surface Pro 3 devices. The update resolves Device Manager issues, enhances the security of Bluetooth and the network controller. The upgrade is therefore recommended to all owners of a Pro 3.

Of the security issues with Infineon's TPM chips is still in the update history for Surface pro 3 nothing to read. Recently it became known that there is a security update for the Pro 3 series with Infineon's TPM chip, which can only be installed manually and at great expense. Correspondingly, it was great hope that Microsoft would solve the problem and provide the necessary update via Windows Update, but in the now published update there is nothing to read.

Few details

However, this does not mean that the now distributed system update does not resolve Infineon's vulnerability. Microsoft only leaves information to new updates in a very short and therefore not necessarily significant manner. We looked at the notes for updates and translated.

Surface Pro 3 owners running at least Windows 10 version 1703 will automatically receive updates.
