Is it because your six core 1090T is significantly slower than a quad core i5 2500k and you somehow feel insecure so you need to attack Intel?
PS, I'm not assuming, I'm just asking questions why you care so much about a platform you will probably never own.
Clearly your understanding of this SB intel security feature is apparently vague, and you give Intel the benefit of the doubt. Of course there are people out there with the skill to exploit the feature remotely. The average consumer shouldn't worry about this. Business or government institutions should probably consider the security risk.
And besides, for the average consumer, they will likely see no issues as I've stated. Right now they should be more afraid of the downclocking issues that are apparent with these processors...or some of the failure rates being reported when these are overclocked?
