Oh, I’m not criticising - my question is genuine. This particular vulnerability isn’t described in detail, and is described as allowing “remote” exploits, which the previous one didn’t. It could well be a different one based on the article you linked.
Looking into it, Charlie from Semi-Accurate has been reporting on a remote exploit vulnerability in IME since May of this year. An article from that same month says Intel offered a patch.
Looks like we’re watching a game of whack-a-mole here.
