I checked with the manager that shows PID and processor graphs and see that CPU 1 (out of several) is at 100% once KVM is turned on and continues even after it is shut down. The fan is running high constantly.
How do I get more information about what is causing that?
What allocates which cores get used? There are 3 virtual like in VirtualBox, right, and then what designates which cores (threads - called “CPU” 1-N) of the physical cpu on a socket?
How can I kill a CPU like a PID process, if I wanted to? How do I get complete control over processor functions? I have coreboot with IME disabled so there is no IME oust. Some cyber attacker just re-broke VirtualBox Whonix so I would like to get KVM running as well as VirtualBox because I am not sending Oracle logs to Guru Meditate.
Thanks for informing us about the responsible disclosure guidelines. Maybe I can contribute to the project since I get the “fuzzing” so much.
Just discovered a new anomaly where the keyboard can be turned off “spontaneously” (by an outside entity) in VirtualBox.
Can you provide instructions about how exactly you would like PGP encrypted information sent to developers? I have a public key and then I should encrypt zipped logs (VirtualBox and KVM) and send them to a developer via PGP and preface that with information similar to the example chart found in the above Bug Reports link? What about OnionShare or SecureDrop?
I did read it when it was first brought up. Does not provide a solution. You says there is likely no advanced malware or Stazi like decomposition. Then you also say there could be viruses and the like. I am using Linux, not Windows, and sandbox with both SELinux and firejail. The only “non-sophisticated” vector could be a virtualized email client on linux. There isn’t much by way of a solution to these possibilities without disposable VMs which I can’t use because of hardware. Compromised firmware isn’t “non-sophisticated.”
I conclude that when there is a “gag order” or someone is labeled a non-person, then every software community attributes the dysfunction to human error while they insist on protections for themselves against the exact sorts of attacks the non-persons they have exiled are actually experiencing.
I bet you’ll call that weird. Then why have you and others developed these security measures? I am not stupid. Things don’t work like they should. No one really answers my questions much.
Snowden was just to cause a chill by letting everyone know the panopticon exists. Real people like me get tortured for years. We don’t live in nice apartments in Russia with hot girlfriends. When you’re a real target, then suddenly everyone claims you’re just for a “glass house” and it’s all your fault if things don’t work and only they deserve privacy and legislative protections and progress. Smells like hypocrisy to me.
