Then look for the MEI controller: # lspci | grep "MEI"
I have a CPU without vPro, but a chipset that supports MEI.
But then, I bought the best CPU available without vPro.
There is also a lms package.
I don't know whether any of this is required for a remote exploit, or if it's only needed for local escallation.
Both "# modprobe -nr mei" and "# modprobe -nr mei_me" report that the module isn't found.
