The vulnerability is related to the flaws in the management firmware that present in these CPUs and allows an attacker to, (among other things), “load and execute arbitrary code outside the visibility of the user and operating system.” Which is not good.
Here’s a screenshot of the tool on a machine that is vulnerable
If you’re vulnerable, you will need to update your computer by doing a BIOS update. Intel has posted a support page at http://www.intel.com/sa-00086-support which lists various PC makers (like Dell, Acer, etc) support pages. Most mainstream PC makers have already posted such support pages.
If you’ve gotten a custom built machine, you’ll need to go to your motherboard manufacturer’s website to see if they have a BIOS update.
