The Gemini Lake mainboards, e.g. J5005-ITX and J4105-ITX, are vulnerable!

The latest released [URL=]BIOS version[/URL] is 1.40 from Oct. 2018.
The TXE version is
The Gemini Lake mainboards are recent products, vulnerable since more than one year but ASrock doesn't release BIOS version with fixes!

Of course, they have fixes from Intel!
They have newer BIOS versions (e.g. with Intel(R) Trusted Execution Engine Version:, but they don't release them!

If you contact the support and ask for details and release of new BIOS versions you don't get a specific/detailed answer (or your questions will just be ignored).

This is a tragedy and not acceptable!

P.S.: This official ASRock Forum is also a mess! No secure communication, not following legal requirements and decades behind state of the art.
