“We now know that it monitors (at the very least) every keystroke, it theoretically allows access to not only every piece of hardware connected to the system bus, but also to every byte of memory currently in use (even while the machine is running). The motherboard provides access to all hardware including memory, the CPU to special software and compute abilities and communications allows it to send and receive behind the scenes”.
If you care about freedom and security as well as privacy do not use the new Intel CPU’s in your computer. Better to use an older computer at this point. I would also NOT use any Microsoft product like MS Windows XP, 7, 8. Microsoft office probably also has back doors built in. I would assume all the big Antivirus companies have back doors into the computer written into the code. Newer printers and network devices all have the ability to phone home and, most likely, allow an inbound connection.
Hell at this point I can’t even tell you that Linux is without back doors. Who has time and the knowledge to search 10,000,000 lines of open source code and look for one bug or back door?
Run an older laptop with a ??? CPU or older AMD CPU. Boot to a linux “live” distro CD/USB (not ubuntu), enable the firewall, do not install an AV client and use an overseas VPN while surfing. I would also disable the wifi and use a cat5 cable. Turn off when done and remove battery and wall AC. Never let the laptop be out of your sight just take it with you.
You must assume all cable modems, satellite modems, DSL modems, routers and fios has a back door built in to allow a connection to your computer. Remember firewalls block ports and this spy equipment does’nt run on a port it runs out of band and bypasses all known detection.
At this point trust nothing!
Disable Intel Active Management through your motherboard’s BIOS configuration utility. My guess is the Fed can turn it on even if its off.
- If your computer has an Intel motherboard customized by a computer manufacturer such as Dell, HP or Lenovo, your screen may display an instruction to press a key to enter the motherboard setup utility when the computer starts. If the instruction displays a key other than “F2,” press that key.
