Remote ‘kill switch’ added to Intel Sandy Bridge

We are giving up control of our computers and putting that control in another’s hands.

Lauded as a security feature, Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processor can be remotely disabled by a hardware/software combination known at Anti-Theft 3.0. Systems can be disabled over 3G networks, even while the OS is not running. Even when the hard drive is replaced, the critical systems will still be terminated. Here’s a list of all Sandy Bridge processors.

At first this sounds great: if an owner loses a laptop it can be remotely disabled to ensure no sensitive data is compromised by amateurs. However since data is stored on hard drives and not on processors, a person with computer knowledge can easily unmount the hard drive and move it on another machine with an unblocked CPU. Essentially we are giving up control of our computers and putting that control in another’s hands.

With the Patriot Act in place and and legislation like the ‘kill switch’ bill, many of the rights we took for granted are threatened. It is well within reason to fear this type of technology as it could be used as a means of control and censorship.

The CIA recently created a ‘honeypot’ on a hijacked mirror site associated with Wikileaks and used it to identify people who download the sensitive data.

University students have been warned not do download Wikileak’s documents under threat of being blacklisted from government jobs.

Homegrown terrorism is the new buzz being cultivated by DHS and various other government agencies. In publications like MIAC report, authorities identify patriots as dangers and label them probable terrorists.

Even Geraldo Rivera has begun to see through the thin veil of false flag terrorism, identifying patsies planted by the very agencies meant to protect us.

We have lost control of our government and soon we will lose control over our own health. Constitutional rights are continually under attack and we are losing the war. With PR spins like Intel’s it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep things in perspective.

Benjamin Franklin once said “He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.”

    “if an owner loses a laptop it can be remotely disabled to ensure no sensitive data is compromised.”

    So the author of this article doesn’t actually understand how a computer works…

    Do you know what a HARD DRIVE is? THAT’s the part which stores the ‘sensitive data’ which you don’t want ‘compromised’… (That’s incorrect English, by the way… You can’t ‘compromise’ data on a hard drive, but you can steal it.)
