I had heard of Intel ME and AMT and AMD PSD awhile back but just discovered Intel Telemetry Collector and the “Compute Improvement Program.”
Mysteriously, my very complex online account passwords just changed themselves without my permission (supposedly stored as a salted hash in the servers, so keylogger Tailored Access op?) after I had to buy a new computer because an EM(I/C) (MIL-STD-461) capability was used for the third time on an expensive computer and aneurismed it.
They want to blank people and computers. Who? NSO? Equation Group? A DOD/DIA unit that targets US citizens in the Continental United States?
What is the best way to neutralize and remove these (malicious) mods?
For example: modprobe -r intel_telemetry_pltdrv
Is anyone familiar with Prometheus and Grafana? Has anyone used this remote administration interface and can tell us more about it?
What readings are available to whom? IRQs and PIDs to Intel Corp?
How would I gain control over Intel NIC and the instruction set for my own computer monitoring?
Can I remotely monitor memory utilization? Why would I want to? Would the Kernel Maintainers think less of me with an inexpensive computer? Is a system that works perfectly well but is not a supercomputer mainframe really such a turn off? Who is profiling hardware and why does this matter? If I have a nice computer, they will just EMP it so I “fit” some negative profile. To put it a different way, why not monkey-wrench a Fire Engine so they have to use a bucket and can’t have any dates then? Why is lowmem/highmem important?
Actually, there is spy stuff. Oh no! Maybe some martinis with hotties in Monte Carlo! ; )
Yes, but Intel Telemetry cannot in the same way. Also, there is a difference between “neutralized” and “removed” ME according to the people who developed ME_Cleaner and Coreboot Configurator. So if something is “off,” is it really? The article from Kicksecure mentions how OOBM is still active even if the computer is powered down.
I am interested in what people have to say about the Kicksecure article since they are also authorities on the matter. Doesn’t seem to require “only if you install it on your network.”
