War: Sanctions against company that showed Intel backdoors
  • From today Positive Technologies is under US sanctions and it is prohibited to do any business with them.

    Company is known for research of undocumented Intel ME engine and corresponding secret parts of CPUs.

    Recently they unveiled hidden and totally secret commands that each Intel processor has and that are aimed to provide total control and go around any restrictions that OS has.

    It seems like Intel is not much happy as company is very close to disclosing huge security holes. It can be politics only that prevent huge worldwide scandal now that will follow after disclosure.
