The Intel Management Engine runs MINIX at ring -3
« on: November 06, 2017, 08:03:42 PM »
The Intel Management Engine is a co-processor integrated in all post-2006 Intel-CPU-based PCs. This co-processor runs a customized version of MINIX at ring -3. That means the Intel Management Engine has full access to network, memory and to the whole computer!
