[33c3 TLDR] Tapping into the core

An interesting talk about how to abuse the USB to JTAG bridge available in newer Intel processors to attack computers through their USB port.

It is not entirely clear to me if this is "just" another case of somebody forgetting to turn of a debug facility and leaving it as a security hole or if there are actually cases when it cannot be disabled.
