I just null routed the ports used by Intel's EMI and AMT in my hardware firewall, problem solved... biggrin.gif

BTW, i wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be true...rolleyes.gif

Are you sure 'bout that? biggrin.gif

Although the story is not entirely unfeasible, given the revelations from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden about backdoors installed into consumer and enterprise technology, as well as the NSA itself setting security certification standards, the actual concrete evidence is not there.

Freelancer Jim Stone, of PopularResistance, claims: “You see, Core vPro processors work in conjunction with Intel’s new Anti Theft 3.0, which put 3g connectivity into every Intel CPU after the Sandy Bridge version of the I3/5/7 processors. Users do not get to know about that 3g connection, but it IS there.”

@offendermullet, it says after sandy, so I am not sure what your point is, Sandy is still the last safe one we know of, not 100% but yea Sandy is OP imo

My point was a joke......humor......Did a quick Google search and skimmed the article for 'sandy'. I'll be more thorough next time, Mr. Serious. thumb.gif

vPro isn't on many desktop CPUs.

Also, I think that 3G thing was taken out of context. This article: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2369110,00.asp states that if the mobile device has 3G, vPro can wipe and disable the system through the notebook's 3G connection. Also, how effective would 3G be inside a desktop? There is so much electromagnetic interference, plus the case is a metal box. If a 3G signal was in the CPU, I am sure some investigator would have tried to detect it by now. To be honest, it sounds more like Intel's latest AMT has the ability to harness a system's built in 3G connectivity for anti-theft.

1) everyone has something to hide. The amount of family cases for abuse alone? Jeeeeebus! People don't understand how common it is for something or somebody to do play foul and never know it.

There is somebody you know that does illicit things, whether you know or not. Even if you don't know, you will be pulled into it if things go bad. If WWIII hit: "so tell me all about this joe, we have all night". If you get what I mean by that example.

2) this is a security issue that is BAD. Bad bad bad bad, shall I continue? The heck with your personal computer. Why ARE nuclear missles controlled by old tech? Eh!? This reason, because with security like this no black hat is going to say a word. None, and in the end this could destroy nations.

What is it that banks use now? Computers you say? Really, so like mass servers that contain data world wide. If the security flaw has an ip, it's even worse. Then it can do a chain reaction at once. And your software firewall? HahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaHahahahahahahahahahsha.

Those are my issues with all this. People don't understand what it means for an unknown future. 2 countries destroyed a nuclear program in secret. we have already seen world domination multiple times, it's not a far stretch to world destruction.

Now, I don't believe I'll ever be spied on. Most people aren't it's not a real thing to spy on us all. But if war ever broke again, we are setting things up ugly, very ugly.

Careful now. That is a slippery slope into rationality.

People forget the PCH is a microcontroller which can be programmed by the motherboard manufacturer to do a whole bunch of stuff, and the slides are from a talk about the security that prevents it from running unauthorized code, and potential to circumvent that security. The back doors talked about aren't secret, it's just a clickbaity way to refer to advertised remote administration and anti theft features.
