    Intel is reporting a firmware vulnerability that could let attackers take over remote management functions on computers built over nearly the past decade.

    The vulnerability, disclosed on Monday, affects features in Intel firmware that are designed for enterprise IT management.

    On May 1, Intel published a security advisory regarding a critical firmware vulnerability in certain systems that utilize Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT), Intel® Standard Manageability (ISM) or Intel® Small Business Technology (SBT). The vulnerability could enable a network attacker to remotely gain access to business PCs or devices that use these technologies.

    I have firewall installed that STOP everything except programs and processes that I want to allow internet access. So it doesnt matter to me :)

    What's more concerning is that every newbie feels the need to add polls to posts
