How to remote hijack computers using Intel's insecure chips: Just use an empty login string

My HP laptop was patched a month ago

The firmware update mentioned security and said "HP strongly recommends" so I'm pretty sure it is the one. Luckily I just had bought a new laptop last fall so it is still actively supported. I'll have to see whether Dell ever releases a firmware update for my old laptop. Since I never use either one wired I'm not really too worried.
