Intel ME runs an entire system that can access everything WITHOUT YOUR control. The NSA (and others) have everything they ordered with Intel & co.

I'm afraid that Spectre comes due to simple cheating. They made their processors faster. All they had to do, was remove a little safety here and there. ;-)
