Surface Pro 3 gets small firmware update focused on device security

Surface Pro 3 isn't exactly the most active device when it comes to firmware updates nowadays, but Microsoft is shipping a fresh one out to the device this week. Specifically, this release is available for devices still running the Windows 10 Creators Update.

The last firmware update to roll out to Surface Pro 3 came in February as a patch for the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities that made headlines early in the year. This latest fix also places a focus on security, but it's unclear exactly what issues it addresses.

According to Microsoft, the update began rolling out on August 7, so your Surface Pro 3 may have downloaded it already. Otherwise, you should be able to grab this security update now via Windows Update if your Surface Pro 3 is still on the Creators Update.
