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.

Which is why I always either get a Mac or Surface, because the only Bloatware these Computers have, are iLife and Office 365 respectively.
Either that, or I just Install Linux off the bat.

It's nothing different with Android Phones and Tablets, where only Nexus Phones/Tablets don't get any Bloatware.
But I don't care about Android, anyway.
