Intel x86 Root of Trust: Loss of Trust

Source: Hacker News

Article note: Womp-Womp. Intel's "Privileged black-box computer inside the computer" security by obscurity model may be subvertable by ... making a DMA write into said privileged black box's memory before it wakes up enough to disable them. Hopefully this will be helpful in hacking fully-Open stacks onto Intel boxes going forward, and/or subverting the TPM-based DRM schemes.
