>Security researchers have pinpointed another major security hole in Intel processors, in addition to the security holes in the Intel Management Engine and the Meltdown flaw that hits Intel CPUs uniquely hard. This time, it’s an issue with Intel’s Active Management Technology (AMT), a feature typically reserved for systems that support Intel vPro or workstation platforms with certain Xeon CPUs.

The Intel AMT is designed to allow administrators to access and update PCs, even if those PCs are turned off. All they need is an internet connection and a wall socket and they can be updated. That’s a useful tool for large multinational firms with far-flung employees, but it’s also a potential security risk. F-Secure has published information highlighting how easily an attacker with even brief local access can gain full access to an entire machine. Here’s how they describe the problem:

>A BIOS password normally prevents an unauthorized user from making low-level changes to a device. However, the essence of this issue is that even when a BIOS password has been set, an attacker does not need it to configure AMT. Not only that, due to insecure defaults in the BIOS and AMT’s BIOS extension (MEBx) configuration, an attacker with physical access can eﬀectively backdoor a machine by provisioning AMT using the default password. The attacker can then access the device remotely, by connecting to the same wireless or wired network as the user. In certain cases, the assailant can also program AMT to connect to their own server, which negates the necessity of being in the same network segment as the victim.

>In short, setting a BIOS password won’t help and once someone has access, you can’t kick them out. The researchers note that no other security measures, including local firewalls, BIOS passwords, anti-malware software, or use of a VPN can prevent a compromised system from leaking data, because it’s been compromised outside of the Windows environment, in a separate OS that’s completely shielded from any attempt to inspect or control the data flowing out of or into it.

>From here, the possibilities are endless. Even firmware-based malware can be easily uploaded to the system with no chance of detection. And while local access might seem a tough barrier to crack, it’s not as hard as it seems. The changes can be made in under a minute, according to F-Secure. It may not be the kind of attack that gets deployed across thousands of systems on a corporate local network — at least not without additional steps — but it’s exactly the kind of targeted attack a government agency might use. And more to the point, it illustrates that Intel CPUs are once again vulnerable to set of management capabilities that Intel decided to sandbox entirely from the primary operating system.

>Once this is done, the attacker can connect to the system if he’s on the same local area network or program AMT to enable Client Initiated Remote Access (CIRA), which will connect to the attackers’ servers and avoid any need for local access at all.

>Not a great look on a company that’s already being hammered by other security flaws. Intel’s entire rationale for keeping so much of its security infrastructure locked away looks less and less like the principled decision of a company keeping us safe and more like a desperate attempt to cover just how badly it treats security. Because folks, look, this is not a sophisticated attack. This is not some crazy idea. In fact, it’s one of the first things I would expect an attacker to try, if said person had even a basic concept of what functions like AMT and the Intel Management Engine can be configured to do.

It's worth emphasizing that this is a local-only exploit (at least initially) and it can be mitigated by accessing the AMT and changing the password.

If it's newer it probably has a soldered-in CPU, if it's older then you'd need to replace the main board in your device. Basically you'd be better off buying an AMD laptop of your choosing.

>Or should I just figure out how to get Linux running on my GameCube (PowerPC + ATI graphics)?

PowerPC after late 2005 is vulnerable to Spectre, so having a Gamecube as a desktop would be no better than having an AMD box; in fact since IBM has had problems patching their POWER chips, it might be worse since that seems to be going smoother for Team Red. However, certain G3 and G4 Apple devices are practically immune to these security flaws due to peculiarities in their design, but they are a decade old so be aware of performance tradeoffs going into a transition to those devices. See >>851512

No.851974

>>851880

>>851972

Also, as an addendum, while Gamecube is older than the G3's and G4's linked above, it's a 400-500MHz processor and would be difficult to use for daily tasks, if you can even get anything running on it. I was thinking more along the lines of the Wii, which IS modern enough to support a desktop system with some success but would have the post G5 PPC Spectre vulnerability. Either way, PPC consoles are unlikely to have any patches issued for Spectre.

It turns out open source software was a red herring. Linux was a distraction. No degree of security or autonomy over a Win10 user. The hardware was fully backdoored long ago.

Wrong. Forth and BASIC are USERLANDS, not complete OS'.

Interestingly enough, the C64 RAM was actually 64K, but many areas of the memory map are occupied by ROM. However the 6502 is smart enough to know that you can't write to ROM, and redirects writes to the ROM area to RAM instead. You can then change the area the VIC][][ chip uses to a ROM-occupied area to use previously unusable area. This can for using the KERNAL area for video memory, for example. Unfortunately this means you cannot read screen memory.

The bigger mistake was when Microsoft picked C instead of Pascal or PL/I. Segmentation was created specifically to improve high-level programming languages and the OS environment. The main problems with C are null-terminated strings, the flat memory model, and arrays that suck.

If you want to fix hardware and software, you have to dispel some myths.

1. Programming languages are too hard to understand unless they look like C.

2. There is no point in replacing C with anything unless it's gigabytes of garbage per second PajeetScript.

3. Languages without a GC like Fortran, Pascal, and Ada are not worth learning, so you should use slow PajeetScript which has a runtime written in C.

4. All problems can be solved by abstraction and throwing more hardware at it so there is no need to care about the lower levels.

This problem is not permanent unless you want it to be. I read on the Mill forums where he said he would have built a capability architecture but it wouldn't be able to run C programs, and I think that's sad.

The main overhead and complexity in operating systems comes from file I/O. Virtual memory was created to get rid of internal file I/O by treating the entire disk as if it was persistent RAM. That's called a single-level store and it's extremely powerful and scalable. Most of our OSes treat RAM and disk like paper tape. Null-terminated strings come from a paper tape convention. They do the opposite of single-level store. They remove parallelism and random access and make things more sequential.

>But I wasn't talking about VS2017 telemetry in the IDE however (and I'll laugh in your face when systemd adds telemetry of its own, enabled by default, in addition to leaking DNS to Google). I was talking about covertly adding telemetry stubs to user programs compiled with it, which VS2015 did but VS2017 doesn't do anymore... unless of course you have evidence to the contrary? Which I'd like to see? Pretty please?

This forced meme is kinda lame. NUL is just an abbreviation in the ASCII table, just as BEL and LF.

He was obviously refering to the null byte used to terminate all C language so-called "strings". Prove that you're a human and can parse natural language like one, else we'll just write you off as one of the markov bots that haunts this forsaken place.

effectively, yes. IQ changes based on the average. It's funny, but most naysayers who claim that we aren't headed for an idiocracy-esque future cite that the average IQ is climbing but fail to realize that that is relative to a fixed point. Of course the IQ is climbing, the average is going down, so today's 100 is last decade's 95.

I'm using Raspian on an overclocked Raspberry PI 3. I'm not claiming x86 has to die, or other nonsense. But Raspi3 is enough for surfing, if you don't open to many tabs. It's not vulnerable to Meltdown and Spectre. Alternative single board computers might even be more secure, and it helps with compartmentalization (don't do all you shit on one computer).

So what is the current status on real-life danger resulting from this?

What are the means to mitigate the risks, use an expendable system that has both firmware and OS reflashed/reimage once a week, and do anything else on airgapped systems?
