AMT, or Active Management Technology, is an Intel technology, that combines hardware and firmware used for maintaining and updating systems. Last week, Intel issued a security advisory for their server-based products that said AMT could be exploited and give unauthorised parties access to a number of processor features. Analysis at SSH Communications Security says this is a very serious issue and that owners of affected systems should disable AMT. Consumer systems are not affected.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
