It’s old cpu is in purpose all new cpu got backdoors

Older versions of Intel Management Engine can be disabled, newer (2010+ hardware) cannot.

This is a great FAQ: https://libreboot.org/faq.html#intel

BTW, did you know that Microsoft just acquired the maker of the ME kernel code Express Logic?
MS + Intel + US Gov’t = Full Control.
