Re: It stupidity anyway
And be dangerous to boot, to make it useful as a handset at those frequencies it would have to emit a completely unsafe amount of RF for being so close to a human body.

Notice that the exploit is a hijacked HYPERVISOR, that's really not an issue.
Anyone can own a machine once they own the root or underlying architecture, having physical access is a ticket to pretty much anything given enough time.
What it doesn't allow is one pwned guest to hijack another, and THAT is the line of security that matters.
That the AMD chip makes it HARDER for BOFH to mess with your stuff is a bonus, the BOFH was never ever actually locked out as he/she has control at the root level and given enough time and skill would pwn it all anyway if they were to be bothered, which most of us really aren't.
So this is another nothing burger, although knowing for sure means I can harden my hypervisor's system down a little harder to make pwning it that much more difficult to the outsider.
No, it couldn't.
That isn't how the Internet works.
The Internet was designed to have MULTIPLE hubs destroyed before there is a loss of services. It was designed to survive a nuclear war. Just cutting the trans Atlantic cables would do nothing to our access or communications. Nothing.
This either shows how incredibly ignorant our leadership is or demonstrates how much they are willing to lie in order to demonize Russia.
