    Was one of the first suggested things, apparently not possible with current progress. But possibly any USB3 device can have the software to talk JTAG down the cable.

    Firefox 57 dropped, and NoScript is immediately nullified due to being a legacy plugin. Apparently, the creator has the new WebExtensions version almost ready-to-go, but is waiting on some APIs that Mozilla still hasn't published.

    A user summed it up nicely:
    Not having this plugin feels like not having safe sex anymore

    I'll have to give it a try.
    Maybe I can give up the sweet google sync if it's good.

    I think it's more like "not having NoScript is like walking barearse in a prison filled with sex offenders" but I suppose that werks.

    I've also got 57, but NoScript (and other extensions) is still working for me, although ofc marked as "Legacy" in the Add-Ons windows. Not sure why it stopped working for you.

    Nevermind, this machine is still on 56 ...

    NoScript finally updated, and has the most bizarre interface now.

    It's indeed quite bizzare. And less configurable than before. I do hope that this is just to get a working version utilizing the new plugin framework out and that the options UI will be expanded after that.

    And here we go: https://security-center.intel.com/ad...nguageid=en-fr

    Summary:

    In response to issues identified by external researchers, Intel has performed an in-depth comprehensive security review of our Intel® Management Engine (ME), Intel® Server Platform Services (SPS), and Intel® Trusted Execution Engine (TXE) with the objective of enhancing firmware resilience.

    As a result, Intel has identified security vulnerabilities that could potentially place impacted platforms at risk.

    Description:

    In response to issues identified by external researchers, Intel has performed an in-depth comprehensive security review of its Intel® Management Engine (ME), Intel® Trusted Execution Engine (TXE), and Intel® Server Platform Services (SPS) with the objective of enhancing firmware resilience.

    As a result, Intel has identified several security vulnerabilities that could potentially place impacted platforms at risk. Systems using ME Firmware versions 11.0/11.5/11.6/11.7/11.10/11.20, SPS Firmware version 4.0, and TXE version 3.0 are impacted.



    Affected products:



    6th, 7th & 8th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Family
    Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v5 & v6 Product Family
    Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family
    Intel® Xeon® Processor W Family
    Intel® Atom® C3000 Processor Family
    Apollo Lake Intel® Atom Processor E3900 series
    Apollo Lake Intel® Pentium™
    Celeron™ N and J series Processors

    Based on the items identified through the comprehensive security review, an attacker could gain unauthorized access to platform, Intel® ME feature, and 3rd party secrets protected by the Intel® Management Engine (ME), Intel® Server Platform Service (SPS), or Intel® Trusted Execution Engine (TXE).

    This includes scenarios where a successful attacker could:

    Impersonate the ME/SPS/TXE, thereby impacting local security feature attestation validity.
    Load and execute arbitrary code outside the visibility of the user and operating system.
    Cause a system crash or system instability.
    For more information, please see this Intel Support article

    Based on the analysis performed by this tool: This system is not vulnerable.
    Not upgrading every year or so has it perks

    I'm still struggling with this new NoScript.

    I find the new UI (the one dealing with the options for the current page, not the addon settings UI) quite counter-intuitive. At first glance I thought "Hey, it's easier. Cleaned up all the messy details." But then I found out that counter to my impression "Trusted" <-> "Untrusted" aren't the two extrems one might think they are (and which they were in the old version, AFAIK). "Trusted" only activates JavaScript for the current page, but keeps other actions still locked. For those to activate, one needs to pick the "Custom" option and then do the trial-and-error dance to find out which of the remaining 7 options might make the current page actually work.

    also amusing the twitter sideshow of personalities frothing over whether or not it's responsible disclosure.

    (Yes this was noticed on the official forums some time ago but only went big in media today after someone else discovered it and @'ed apple support on twitter about it.)

    Although I was a multi-decade long Mac fan, the behaviour of Apple in general and its rabid fans in particular is one of the things that drove me away from the platform.

    Recently had a chat with a teacher from a different school at a conference on digital education and media competence. From the usability point of view Apple may actually be the best option for a school (that is including the fact that we don't have any IT personnel at all). And we both are solid windows fanboys.
