Just learned of this new threat vector, ran intel's scan. This was output :

OS Version: Ubuntu 17.10 artful (4.13.0-17-generic)

*** Intel(R) ME Information ***
Engine: Intel(R) Trusted Execution Engine
SVN: 0

*** Risk Assessment ***
Based on the analysis performed by this tool: This system is vulnerable.
The detected version of the Intel(R) Trusted Execution Engine firmware is considered vulnerable for INTEL-SA-00086.
Contact your system manufacturer for support and remediation of this system.

For more information refer to the SA-00086 Detection Tool Guide or the Intel security advisory Intel-SA-00086 at the following link:

So I'm wondering what steps to take.

Edit two weeks later:
Hard to believe in this day and time that UP/AAEON won't even comment on this!?
