UPC code breaking chip for Intel: no one is safe




The scientist named Chris Kasperski (Kris Kaspersky) claims that he managed to find a vulnerability in processors Intel, which allow hackers to access the computer using JavaScript or features of the protocol TCP / IP – regardless of which operating system on the computer installed. However, the scientist prefers to keep quiet about the details of his discovery. He plans to present a dangerous development at a conference Hack In The Box, which will be held in Malaysia in October this year. In a demonstration of its code Chris Kasperski illegally gain access to any computer on the network. Vulnerability concerns a small set of errors contained in the BIOS of most manufacturers. Vulnerable families found themselves operating systems Windows, Linux, BSD and Mac. And we, ordinary mortals, still trembling with fear, suggesting that the discovery of the scientist – not a mistake or a hoax.
