    Default A nifty article on CPU backdoors

    Came across this an hour or so ago while browsing around and it was such a good read i couldn't help but post it. The only thing that kept coming to mind was 3 letter acronyms and government sponsored research.

    Its a good read even if your the not so technical type, but that shouldn't be a problem here i hope

    CPU Backdoors
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    No but there is a link to buy it for $25.00 if you are serious about it.
    Not to mention it is copyrighted so technically there may be something against someone giving it to you.

    Highly unlikely, but still a scary thought if there indeed was a backdoor inside every single computer running an AMD/Intel processor out there.

    Thanks for the link enjoyed reading it (:
