Not that it changes the impact, but none of this is new information, nor evidence that he really was at Intel. It just sounds like someone who wants us to pay attention to how our CPUs are backdoored by wrapping it in a common story format. Check our the Intel vPro chips, which have a built-in 3G modem; your computer can be remotely controlled anywhere there's cell coverage. This has been known since at least 2013. http://news.softpedia.com/news/Secret-3G-Radio-in-Every-Intel-vPro-CPU-Could-Steal-Your-Ideas-at-Any-Time-385194.shtml

As usual, ^ this guy gets it.

Also there is no proof of shit there, a real devastating leak of an Intel backdoor like this would need more significant documentation or proof. I mean we're only talking about the most widely deployed general computing chips in the world here.

Best practice is to assume that most big technology corporations are working in some way with the US intelligence agencies to backdoor your crap.

It's no surprise either. The US has been interesting in domestic spying since the cold war. We have dozens of "intelligence" agencies who employ hundreds and thousands of incredibly smart developers and engineers who's sole job is to build tools to spy on the people.

As far as anyone's concerned, AMD probably backdoors their chips as well.

https://voat.co/v/whatever/1740894 - voat, fundamentally altering your freedom to express yourself, without your consent nor knowledge; you can't silence the truth. that's what scares you so much, shills.

puttitout has fundamentally altered how voat runs, again, without telling you. here i am again, giving you the v/announcements that a real dev would be talking to you about before even writing in the code. you cannot downvoat posts more than you upvoat posts now. ...

THAT GUY IS LYING THROUGH HIS TEETH. "APPEAL TO EMOTION" OF THE COMMUNITY (THAT'S LEFT).

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT AN ABUSER OF VOAT THAT IS OPENLY PRO-CENSORSHIP AND COMMITS CRIMES IN THE EFFORT TO SILENCE OTHERS.

Here is the sales brochure from 2011. Read it, it's far far worse.

On top of all that, it was posted to 4chan and the first rule of 4chan is that nothing on it is real. It might be, but its just as likely to assume that its anon having fun roleplaying as a nerdy code guy at intel

4chan blows me away constantly with some of the stuff that has gone on. I wouldn't dismiss anything solely because it's from 4chan.

Hey @jerry, nice to see your skeptical commenting continue the downplay on top comments.

Yeah, and the information they gave makes it sound very easy to figure out who they are. Making it sound not so anonymous.

This is what I keep telling people who think smart Tv's with mics and cameras are cool. I don't care if you don't join that shit to your Wi-Fi. Your neighbors open Wi-Fi network or a built in cell chip are the crux of it all.
