"We just discovered a vulnerability in a raft of CPUs that dates back more than a decade and nobody had a clue."

Nobody had a clue?


I seriously doubt that is the case.

See the flaws in the Intel Management Engine, their implications and consequences.

It's a long albeit interesting read.

And then see if you can, with all the good faith you could possibly muster, say "nobody had a clue" again.
