Yay! Intel has been hiding a 7 year old zero day attack!

Woop woop!

l33t!

For the past seven years, millions of Intel workstation and server chips have harbored a security flaw that can be potentially exploited to remotely control and infect systems with spyware.


Anybody have a rootkit????/



That means it is possible for hackers to log into a vulnerable computer's hardware – right under the nose of the operating system – and silently tamper with the machine, install virtually undetectable malware, and so on, using AMT's features. This is potentially possible across the network because AMT has direct access to the computer's network hardware.


Looks like shares on Intel stock may be taking a hit. Good things in store for the new AMD Ryzen processors!

How can you be sure this has anything to do with H1-B Visas?

Yup.

Spent all day trying to mitigate potential impact on this one.

My guess? Nsa put it in there. Intel knew all along.

You know what sucks too.. it effects Kabylake, intels latest 4k release. I was getting ready to buy one too now I have to take a serious look at Ryzen.
