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?
When I arrived here, I had to wait for 2 years to get any social benefits.
After 1.5 years, when the "IT bubble" popped, I had to look for another
job, and it took, with Christmas and summer coming up, nearly half a year
(I got three offers in one week early March then.) Having no social
benefits did not make it the best of times.
The last budget was increasing it from 3 to 4 now.
Well, just migrants, who cares?
Today I read an article about the sluggish growth of Darwin's population.
Many arrive, but many leave as well.
One of the cited problems:
"No matter how qualified an individual may be, they still do need a leg-up
in the first few months of coming to an entirely new place," he said.
"They're not eligible for any form of government support or welfare in
order to establish themselves, and that seriously needs to be looked at."
I understand that. I had my first interview in Adelaide, and I liked to
live there then, but nothing came up quickly so I moved to Melbourne
If you wonder why everybody comes to Sydney or Melbourne, the lack of
initial support may be one reason.
"The fundamental operating model of Australian politics is breaking down"
It claims that things get harder - because we are more polarised.
Interesting is the graphic under "Australian voters are polarising", and
how it is interpreted.
According to that, the middle disappears, and we become more lefties or
However, I see the right over 20 years being constant by ca.25 %.
Just the 'left" side is constantly growing, from 19.5% in 1996 to 31.4% in
Furthermore interesting, the numbers show a clear correlation to the Greens
which came from less than 2% primary votes to ca.10% over the last years.
The question is: Why is doing Labor so badly while the 'left" side is
My short answer: The "lefties" do not feel represented by Labor.
I'm interested in opinions and experiences with mobile-phone OS's
alturnative to Android;
I have been 'deleting' away at an old Galaxy SII (GT-19100T), with the
help of Kingroot for a couple of years,
in the hope of turning it into a useful device, mostly I use a very
simple Telsta ZTE-165 mobile and do all my browsing ,
on desktops and laptops "(this is unlikely to change much, as browsing
on a phone just seems like looking through a key-hole);
but I have finally lost patience with Android (and Google)....Craig's
comment regarding "spyware for Google";
seems very much to the point! I also am considering OS replacement or
just buying a phone with such pre-installed.!
given the many hidden 'gotcha's' in the myriad replacement 'recipes'
