You may have heard about the vPro/AMT security vulnerability that is affecting systems going back to 2008.http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/intel-amt-vulnerability-announcement.html
This likely affects your system and it is recommend to get a firmware upgrade to fix this even if your AMT is not provisioned.
See #3 in the announcement for the detection tool: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/26755/eng/discoveryToolInstaller_188.8.131.52.msi
Download, install, run from the start menu. It will say at the top of the output "Not Vulnerable
" or "Vulnerable
". If you are Vulnerable, goto next step. If Not, consider yourself lucky.
See #5 in the announcement for various manufacturer sites and whether or not they have a fix yet.
It will be at least a firmware upgrade to fix this. Install it once available.
