Saw this on Twitter -
As I understand this is still the Management Engine thing? This was talked about quite extensively earlier this year.
Or is it a second vulnerability?
Still seems to be the same.
The talk should be online somewhere.
Like the blackhat presentation title says, you can hack a powered down computer with this.
If you feel like disabling it. This is the tool for you.
Use carefully. VERY Carefully.
Seriously, this is advanced level hacking. If fuck up, your stuff dies.
Actually, see top right

Yeah, i think i pass, i dont want to kill my CPU
Another awesome PDF by ptresearch - walking through disabling ME. Screw up, and your CPU can burn…!!
Here’s the main convo - Intel Management Engine successfully hacked via USB
ME is now hackable via USB too… (closing this thread off…)
I think this puts to bed the whole “I need a backdoor that only I can use” argument for good.
