I'm sending this again because it seems kinda on-topic (as opposed to say, the flu hysteria, 'womens day' and similar garbage)
It's not clear to me how the exploit is supposed to work, and I haven't researched it further, but as far as I can tell it seems as if all chips have one single, master private key in them...or something like that.
My naive assumption is that all locked down hardware-malware has a publick key in ROM, and that the chip will only accept signed firmware. So there shouldn't be any private key. But the intel system looks a lot more complex.
So, what's going on?
