@tewha interesting. I imagine it’s probably some form of depth-scanning-camera-type radar, actually.

@tewha a client of mine (who manufactures lens accessories) discovered their internet connection had been using private Chinese DNS servers (set by the ISP) for the previous three months. Because someone in China had rung up the ISP and requested it...

@tewha I would assume so. Hyperthreading problems have been around since 2005 IIRC, and Intel seem fairly on top of it.

Most people I’ve spoken to who know about these sorts of things don’t see what the fuss is about to be honest - although they recognise the need for concern. There are easier ways to siphon data...

@tewha I did post about it but I suppose it must’ve got lost somewhere. :)

You’re welcome!
