Don't know how I missed this but will chalk it up to living outta my vehicle until today.

My head just exploded. Being turned off is not good enough!

Will have to look into seeing if this is in other chip sets too but not enabled.

That's why I live in a double Faraday cage. Plus it tickles when lightening strikes :-)

No just kidding; I too am stunned-yet-not-surprised at another backdoor. Makes me think how, if the NSA toolkit really was stolen or acquired, how responsible the US government would be to tell Microsoft/Intel/Etc what needs to be patched in order to prevent mass mayhem. Maybe they have.
