I'm hoping a future release of Qubes integrates this into the install process for us. Or be downloadable as a package like Anti-Evil Maid?
Was going to post the same. 2 Russian researchers that a couple weeks ago found out a way to clean some modules on Intel ME now have found a significative exploit that allows them to actually run code on a piece of hardware with direct access to the network. The scary thing is - it's impossible to detect.
and thats prolly just what we know about lol.
I feel like cause I live in nyc that you just expect this type of stuff from your friends and neighbors hahaha. maybe not the same means but the same ends. but ya hardware level stuff is scary, cause that means real security means alot of money, so poor people are screwed.
Purism says they are diabling it by default on all laptops they are sending out now.
Now if only the hardware was just slightly more powerfull and future oriented.
