management engine can now be exploited remotely via WiFi lore.kernel.org/all/2021111206

@MatejLach Seems best to avoid Intel altogether, but suppose for a moment that I am anyway using some kind of Intel-based computer. If I manage to remove or destroy its built-in wifi part and instead use only separately connected network devices (plugged in via a USB port or so), that should help protect against this?
