Submission + - Intel Patches Flaws in Trusted Execution Tech (net-security.org)

An anonymous reader writes: Invisible Things Lab issued the results of their research in which they describe how flaws in Intel's Trusted Execution Technology (whose function is to provide a mechanism for safe loading of system software and to protect sensitive files) can be used to compromise the integrity of a software loaded via an Intel TXT-based loader in a generic way, fully circumventing any protection TXT is supposed to provide. The attack exploits an implementation error in the so called SINIT Authenticated Code modules and that could potentially allow a malicious attacker to elevate their privileges.
