I wonder if that "second" chip could be disabled by insulating some pins on the CPU. I am sure some one will come up with a solution.

AFAIK without the ME functioning properly, the system won't even post. Here's a good read smile.gif

I always say if the BIOS is made in USA, USA knows how to control your PC no matter where in the world it is powered on and connected to network from, period. Even if I make my own OS from scratch and try to make it the most secure OS ever made, all my coding will become garbage as soon as I start coding for network connectivity. Why ? Because I will never exactly know how BIOS hardwires the network controller to my coding. Well I can't complain after all we can't actually own their Microprocessor, because modern digital transistor based computer we are running has been mad in the USA by the greatest minds of the world, and if they think they want to spy on you in an attempt to catch perpetrators and make the world a better place, let them do it. (I am talking about architectures made under U.S. Supervision).

It is simple, we need to get over this, don't do any illegal things that can harm this civilization.
And always disconnect your camera and microphone while masturbating when watching porn, in case you are skeptical of being recorded by NSA. redface.gif

That's exactly the information they're looking for to dismantle evil splinter cells of ISIS. You should mail them it directly!

Actually you're hilariously wrong. That's only 2,000 Terabytes. The FBI is working on storing their vast paper document library? At halfway they're already up to like... half a petabyte alone? Sorry but I'm almost positive you've skipped over a few details...

At some point the communication needs to pass through a router/gateway to get on the internet. So, with the right firmware/OS you should be able to track and kill these communications before getting online. It's just normal TCP/IP traffic. So any good security annalist should be able to figure out a way to track and block it. Right?

I'm all for electronic privacy, but some of y'all need to seriously get a grip on reality. Especially with this extraordinarily sensationalist article. Why?

 

Because:

 

  1. Why on earth would the federal government dedicate their time and resources to target YOU, an INDIVIDUAL, for data. When they can achieve the same thing, except on a VASTLY larger scale by compromising large data centers (Google, etc.) over your measly computer. Some people just have no sense for the scale of operations.
  2. Why are you even using the internet if you are so unbelievably paranoid about the security of your computer? Why are you using Google? Why are you using services that have your data stored in centralized locations across the globe?

 

 

I'm sorry if I sound like a prick when I say this, but some people on this board really need to get a dosage of reality. Some people are reaching the level of the conspiracy nutjob that cannot see reality. And it is annoying as heck to read.

Two questions:

1. Why is this considered sensationalist when news of this backdoor has appeared in multiple, non conspiratorial sources
2. Why are their emotional reactions to anyone who wants to take this seriously

Just curious.

Have you heard of the NSA?

There's plenty of money paying people for exactly this purpose. 52.6 billion dollars last year, actually. That rivals the budget of Apple, one of our largest corporations. The money spent is money earned from taxpayers. We vote for this.

What you're saying is very much the same as saying "the sheer amount of manpower that would be required to make iPhones for almost every person is astounding on it's own, much less that someone would PAY others to make iPhones. It's just not a possibility."

The accuracy of targeted advertising is plain to see by the revenue of that industry, and the personal-touch of ads you see on your Facebook feed. Youtube knew I wanted to watch E3. You think there's a man behind some computer somewhere watching me to deliver that content? No, it's from a database of my personal search queries. Give people content they like, and they'll likely develop more of an interest in content that you delivered to them. Do this for a lifetime, and content pushers can be understood to be a major mechanism by which long term "interests" are proliferated within individuals. Do this with political content instead of just corporate products, and you've earned yourself something more valuable than a successful corporation.

Smart political parties should be producing humorous and memorable ways of conveying their "product" through online media. The natural content delivery systems of things like Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter will deliver more media about your party if they watch and "like" the content that they're currently getting. Parties need money to do this, so their product needs to also be the product of their largest investors. That's a smart move if you want your party to be popular; so you need to take on policies that'll support your investors (that's what they're paying you for, after all.)

And my oh my, once graphene shows up. The capability of big data goes so far through the roof.

It's not unreasonable to expect that the "best of us" are sort of in danger of getting plucked out, if we allow big data to completely marginalize our privacy. This whole observation might seem a bit premature at the moment, but technological advancement isn't exactly slowing down and the integrity within our government and corporate structure isn't exactly at an all time high. It's plain to see the trends, if you're looking objectively.
