Will Intel get away with what is going on???  Some news indicates they knew about the issue awhile back and did not get the news out.  It would seem both the public and manufacturers both being affected would have a solid case!  All thoughts appreciated!

And their corporate leaders knew and sold stock before the news was released.

I hope that people doing this will remember that spectre/meltdown are not the only bad things intel has been involved in. The whole management engine business is potentially quite a lot more damaging than the two vulnerabilities could be, atleast the vulnerabilities only let memory be READ, the management engine can be used to WRITE AND READ memory and change more or less anything else on a computer. The scandal here needs to be used to punish intel, and other chip makers, for including non-deactivatable management engines in their products, something to warn them off pursuing secureboot any further would also be desirable.
