TPM firmware upgrade

Windows 1803 reports outdated TPM firmware versions, including on the TPM 2 module I had from Asus (TPM-M R2.0) (containing the Infinite 9665 chipset).
This get rid of the error/warning you have to upgrade the firmware of the TPM chip. This is quite difficult and requires some fiddling.
The security warning is defined as ADV170012 | Vulnerability in TPM could allow Security Feature Bypass

cd Firmware
TPMFactoryUpd.exe -update config-file -config TPM20_latest.cfg

  • Reboot the system
  • Open the bios and enable TPM
  • Reset the TPM  key
  • Reboot
  • Start Windows
