New Intel CPUs Have NSA Exploitable Secret Hidden Backdoor
New Intel CPUs come with a hidden backdoor that can allow hackers or the NSA to control your computer remotely even while PC is turned off
Hardware security export Damien Zammit revealed some startling revelations in a recent SoftPedia about the secret backdoor built in to new Intel CPUs that no one can touch or disable.
The backdoor, called the Intel Management Engine (ME) is works as a secret subsystem inside your computer's CPU and runs constantly even when your computer is not turned on.
It works but setting up a TCP/IP server and since the subsystem has complete uncontrolled access to your computer's hardware, including the network card and memory, it works without the knowledge of your computers operating system and can not be disabled by the OS or by your computer's firewall.
