blogs are incredible time sinks

When I first put together this blog I had a grand idea that I would use it to post news and relevant bits from the tech world that I found interesting.

In truth, it was not a well thought out plan.

There are simply so many news sites / news aggregators out there that there’s not really any real reason for any more to exist, especially not one that is human-curated.

So… what now?  Good question. I’ll probably clean up some of the older stuff and then try to post updates on some of the “larger events” in tech news and also tidbits on various things I’m working on and studying for. I may adjust the format too.

As always, the slack link is still up and seems to have a pretty active core group of people involved in networking, virtualization, programming, and so on.

Intel AMT Security Issue Lets Attackers Bypass BIOS and BitLocker Passwords

Intel Chip Broken

“An F-Secure security researcher has found a way to use Intel’s Active Management Technology (AMT) to bypass BIOS passwords, BitLocker credentials, and TPM pins and gain access to previously-secured corporate computers.

Only laptops and computers on which Intel AMT has been provisioned (configured) are vulnerable, according to F-Secure security researcher Harry Sintonen, the one who claims to have discovered the issue last July.”
