Hundreds of Millions of Dell Users at Risk from Kernel-Privilege Bugs
https://threatpost.com/dell-kernel-privilege-bugs/165843/


For a moment I was fearing I'd have to replace my ancient del servers. The I realized they are so ancient they predate this bug.

I'm going to have to research this. I don't think I've got push firmware enabled on the Dells I own. They don't make it clear in the article if a remote attack can be initiated against the firmware - or if you need physical access.

Threats of this kind are not even new. Insecure BIOS-flash drivers have been a known vector for quite some time now. I'll bet that this was quietly known and exploited in certain circles for years.

If I were to make another attempt at I2P, is it safe to say you're not using it and I won't break your workflow?  I think the answer is yes but I wanted to make sure.

Even if you dont have it enabled, with Vpro, dont be surprised if you actually do anyway :) 

Amazing how they snuck that into pretty much everything modern and no one really noticed the HUGE hole it was until it was too late...Putting effectively another computer at a lower level that has access to *everything* and never turns off, cant be a good idea to anyone, other than those wanting the control.

Tho it did quietly make minix the most used OS on the planet for non-mobile devices.

I am using it, but not with Uncensored. SOme other people and I tried your i2p interface after you migrated it but it didn't work so we fell back to Tor.

Ok then I'm going to delete it, and I'll try again at some future date.
