[Bglug] Intel chipsets can be remotely hacked

I wonder if "vulnerable to local attack" means that the feature (SBT) can be disabled in BIOS.

The cynic in me perceives this as a programmed obsolescence ploy by Intel.

BTW visited Bletchley last week. Now I want to build a dekatron.

It was obvious for a *long* time this was inevitable...

Those Intel chipsets with remote network management?  They've been 
vulnerable to hacking for the past 9 years or so.
