        Well, I did the Zuckerberg maneuver and covered mine with electric tape. So the joke is on them.

          WTH Intel? Where's the IPU4 driver (i.e., my IceLake CPU)?!

            Just make sure it's made out of the correct material

              he he, I wasn't aware of those.

              Here is one for the people with access to 3D printers:

                Yup, and it's on a ROM chip, so you can't do anything about it.

                  Kudos to the dev for getting back to the driver (even though I don't have this device), but it's a little sad that big HW companies still fail to support their HW correctly.
                  Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

                    I believe the only thing burned into ROM is Intel's public key and the minimal setup code that makes proper CPU-function dependant on loading and booting an Intel-signed ME blob from the flash chip.
