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.

There is a good reason to assume that this isn't the case.

Assuming Intel was working with intelligence agencies to create unfixable backdoors like this, it would compromise the very machines that are used in various intelligence agencies and other sensitive departments or companies all over the world. It just does not make sense, both for the agencies and Intel. Why would Intel even consider doing this if they knew how badly it would affect them if it ever came out?

I also highly doubt this information would be shared solely on 4chan without any hard evidence if it was actually an Intel employee trying to tell people about it.

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.
