This is either bad, or good. I think it's good as It could potentially lead to more knowledge on how ME works and perhaps figure out an easy way to disable it. For those who don't know, ME is a backdoor (Basically a separate cpu within the cpu) in pretty much every modern Intel CPU that allows government agencies to remote your machine at the hardware level. Even if it's off. It's also rumoured to have a 3G radio so even airgapped networks could be vulnerable, though I don't think anyone has fully proven this yet. https://twitter.com/h0t_max/status/928269320064450560 AMD has their own version of this too, I forget what it's called.
