Intel Management Engine is a hidden OS running on your actual cpu, and you may need a BIOS/UEFI update to close it. It's a serious vulnerability that can result in privilege escalation or even virus code running in a space you cannot access.
Intel has a tool to detect. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27150
If your system is vulnerable, make sure to flood ASUS support about it to be sure it's corrected and make the public aware.
MSI quickly released an update regarding this and Dell just recently released them as well; however my newer asus notebook from 2016 is still vulnerable. I'm really getting fed up with ASSUS.
The conspiracy theorists were right to go nuts about ME/AMT all those years ago...
