ASUS LiveUpdate is one of ASUS' preinstalled bloatware programs, that updates shit like BIOS, drivers etc...

The updates are retrieved over plain HTTP and not authenticated. There is a way, via MitM and some other trickery, to make it run a malicious executable with admin/system privileges.



Long story short, first thing to do when getting a new computer is axing all the preinstalled bloatware.

Just as bad as the Lenovo "Superfish" malware, too :P Typically whenever I buy a name brand machine I do a full format and erase the hard drive and do a clean install using the OEM supplied key ;)
