Published details do in fact remain vague.  But here's an ars technica


If I'm reading this correctly the vulnerability doesn't even require AMT
to be activated in your machine, or even enabled in your BIOS, to root
the machine.  Intel chipsets have AMT on the dies, whether or not the
particular machine they're installed in has it activated or reports it
during POST.
