Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

Just like AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound) vastly nastier than StuxNet.

American military made a grave mistake by giving access to the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.




Post your sources so I can start panicking.

Don't intel processors have something similar?




Phenom II's didn't have PSP. In fact they and their immediate successor, the FX series, were the last AMD CPUs to not have it.


OP is saying this super secret backdoor works similarly to PSP, not that it's PSP.


anyone want to buy an AMD Phenom II X4 965 system?


I am so sick of this shit already. FUCK amd and FUCK intel. Fuck computers


why does this matter?
what operation are you doing on a computer that is so sensitive and also requires a modern processor?


modern processor = literally everything made after 2006
Also OP is a hoax (hopefully).


yeah so why cant i use a thinkpad from 1999 if im hacking the spooks or whatever. Its not like you need a quad core to open a terminal.


Hardware that old is vulnerable for other reasons.


Thanks OP, I'm going to wire my own transistors together on my next computer.


>>8216 (wtf gemchan.net broke i coudn't post there)
i plan on buying an AMD laptop soon how do shield myself from this (what about intel ME is this the same)
also whats a good budget 16 core AMD processor (my i7 only has 8) (how the hell do i replace my soldered LPddr3)
they said AMD chips have better VM support and faster performance (i need a portable lab i can take on holiday VACation)
mewch /tech/ once said [not using a burner PC for running sketchy shit] (i once talked about this program cannot run in a VM error)
how do i prevent malware from trashing the system UEFI (and HDD firmware rootkit) i will buy a cheap broken laptop on raon (shopee sucks) since desktop is too expensive
then add capture card to the HDMI and arduino rubber ducky to simulate mouse movement (i also have temperature sensor relay connected to the charger incase it goes on fire)


(if OP is not a faggot, which is never the case)
go on vacation to china and buy it there

>protecting against the exploding computer virus
good man


probs intel cope or damage control


>BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound)
Just don't have a radio mic or speakers?
Whats to stop you from popping open your laptop or cell phone and wireclipping the LTE/speaker cables.


honestly who cares if ur not gonna do a crime


well he can't admit to planning one nowadays can he?

it's never been about crime
Knowledge is power, if corporations or other organisations know more about you as you know about them, they have an knowledge advantage over you that lets them politically disenfranchise you. Class societies have a class war going , and the surveillance stuff is them following the doctrine of "know your enemy". Even if you are just a rightist social democrat that wants bourgeois democracy with welfare capitalism, you have to insist on completely removing the state and corporations from personal devices and home networks, or you' won't even be able to have bourgeois democracy.

Even if the proletariat has robust control over the state you would still make personal devices off limits, people store their personal lives in these things and it's almost like violating bodily autonomy if you give powerful organisations access to personal devices. You wouldn't want to be frisked by the police in the offline world even if you have nothing to hide, so it's not ok to do that in the online world.

It's also really stupid for strategical considerations, the NSA or big tech is not securing the access they have to your machines, so even if you are fine with making people corporate serfs without political rights, you would still hand them over to basically moderately tech-able organisations that can buy cyber-break-in tools from the grey market. Basically the backdoors to your computer and communications will become available to your local mafia, eventually, because big organisations leak what ever trick they develop.

For a strong socialist society the reasons are different, people cannot be politically disenfranchised even if you backdoor devices. But it would still compromise your technology and infrastructure. You have no reason to believe that a socialist society would be better at securing "the other end of the backdoor". It makes your society vulnerable to coordination-collapse-attacks. An example of this type of attack was the Soviet block dissolution. The entire economic system relied on the central planning buro for economic coordination and once the neo-liberal coup was able to break it the entire system collapsed. Never build fragile systems like that ! The more robust soviet planning system, they should have build, would have backup coordination layers for the economy. The backup system needs to have an irresistible tendency to regenerate a new central planning buro within a short time after a coup destroys the original one.

A system has to reproduce it's existence and it has the regenerate bits if they get destroyed.

I have a hunch that a lot of cyberwar stuff will be in our future and societies that do not have these backup layers will not make it through. Many societies will choose to use legal and police terror to deter attacks instead of improving the robustness of their systems, that will make them mimic the error of the late soviet union and suffer the same fate. Capitalist societies might have it worse because the big bourgeoisie now have aristocratic desires and activel tries to suppress things that make the system resilient, because they see that as competition.


GOOD post.
