Disabling Intel ME 11 via undocumented mode


I saw this via https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/6wkbch/disable_intel_me_and_it_runs_minix/

I’m impressioned with some recent discoveries on Intel ME, and this is the most awesome, this will possible benefices the purism efforts as well coreboot and libreboot, in something without precedent, I think.

“So they made a backdoor for NSA to disable ME, because ME can’t be trusted?”
a backdoor on a backdoor…

That’s not particularly helpful to us for what we want to do. As far as I understand it, the me_cleaner is achieving the same or similar results.
What’s really impressive is the reverse engineering they did to confirm what that feature does internally.
