There is an escalation of privilege vulnerability in Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT), Intel® Standard Manageability (ISM), and Intel® Small Business Technology versions firmware versions 6.x, 7.x, 8.x 9.x, 10.x, 11.0, 11.5, and 11.6 that can allow an unprivileged attacker to gain control of the manageability features provided by these products.
Can I preview a bitlink before clicking on it?

Andrew thanks for your practical advice;
seems as Nic expressed in less detail :
- the odds are not good and
- even if possible, it may well be beyond my legal and financial abilities.
Also thank you Trent for the aquisition history beyond iPrimus ;
ie "..... following that indicate iPrimus was acquired by M2 in 2012,
and M2 merged into Vocus in 2016."
It seems as though the regulatory situation is that the succesive owners
are continuing to keep "rhn(a)jeack.com.au" ;
going, even though they have no actual legal obligation to do so.
What I will do now is start to look around for a durable non-web email
that is obviously not tied to a particular ISP ...suggestions welcome!
- I already have one with vfemail.net that is accessible with TOR
(unlike gmail... etc) and;
- I don't like the the browser interfaces to email for general
as they seem slow,clumsy and connection dependent

Thanks for everyone who made the October meeting possible and especially to
Wen Lin and Shannon Pace for the very interesting presentations. Also, my
apologies for ducking out on everyone after the meeting (I got little
enough sleep as it is!).
Are there any membership fees to LUV? Or is there some way to contribute to
the costs of hosting these events?
Proud penguinista since 2001.
Would be grateful for advice at the naive user level for help on how to
proceed with following problem
rhn(a)jeack.com.au is a functioning email address;
that is I can send (eg this one ) and recieve emails from it ;
the history is that ownership seems to have been taken over by
different companies following amalgamations :
jeack pty. ltd was taken over by hotkey was taken over by iprimus....etc.
Question: iprimus now seems to have disowned the domain name
(conversation with iprimus support ) ;
basicly even 2nd level support doesn't know or can't be bothered working
out how the current arrangement can exist.
My suspicion is that somehow "rhn(a)jeack.com.au" has become an alias for
"rhn1(a)hotkey.net.au" (which is acknowledged to exist)
I would like to keep the email address; but their technical support
seems to be suggesting I host the domain somewhere else,
is this possible ? Just off the top of my head even if the domain name
is no longer registered;
surely this would have consequences should there be any one else with a
'jeack.com.au' email address ?;
BUT if it was possible what is the proceedure ?

; so it (and I) are living on borrowed time !..........:-)
Are domain names like company names in that they become available ;
if and when someone ceases paying the registation fee ?
regards Rohan McLeod
When the domain expires then after a wait of 30 days anyone can register
it but with .com.au domains only the registrar knows the expiry date.
