French government found a way to hack any Xeon

Loïc Duflot, a computer security specialist for the French government's Secretary General for National Defense information technology laboratory, claimed that he found a way to take remote control of any Intel Pentium/Xeon running any operating system. The problem might be related to the bugs (Errata) in the EM64T implementation.

Geek.com has an article on 3GHZ Opteron Spec scores.

Is this a surprise? Every modern Intel chip has USI govware in it. The side effect of the govware is all the poorly fitted weatherstipping around the back doors. Just think "the Microsoft Windows of the hardware world". You can put your data in your Wintel house, but after that, your data is not in Kansas anymore...
