These BIOS updates patch an Intel security vulnerability:
BIOS 1.09 Updates 

  • Update ME firmware to for Intel security vulnerability.
**Please update this BIOS version only via the Windows Installation method. Failure to do so may cause the BIOS to crash and no longer boot.**


Windows Installation

         134-KS-E279-KR - EVGA Z270 Classified K
         132-KS-E277-KR - EVGA Z270 FTW
         111-KS-E272-KR - EVGA Z270 Stinger

  • First go into your BIOS and load defaults, save and exit
  • Close all open programs.
  • Go into the folder where you unzipped this package and double-click update.bat
  • Press Y to start the flash process
  • After the flashing is finished, the system will automatically shut down. Then power on again and go into BIOS to setup.
  • NOTE: If the flash box immediately closes after flash attempt, the flash may need to be run from a CMD prompt with administrator privileges or DOS version.
Please let me know if anyone runs into problems with this update.  Thanks!
