No, as the link you yourself posted says (for both versions):

This version does not provide automated mitigation support.

For reference, we are talking about CVE-2017-5689.

Intel released a statement here:

Step 1: Determine if you have an Intel® AMT, Intel® SBA, or Intel® ISM capable system. If you determine that you do not have an Intel® AMT, Intel® SBA, or Intel® ISM capable system then no further action is required.

Step 2: Utilize the INTEL-SA-00075 Detection Guide to assess if your system has the impacted firmware. If you do have a version in the “Resolved Firmware” column no further action is required to secure your system from this vulnerability.

Step 3: Intel highly recommends checking with your system OEM for updated firmware. Firmware versions that resolve the issue have a four digit build number that starts with a “3” (X.X.XX.3XXX) Ex:

Step 4: If a firmware update is not available from your OEM, mitigations are provided the INTEL-SA-00075 Mitigation Guide.


You can check if your system is vulnerable by running the tool you have linked in your question. If your system is vulnerable, update the firmware.
