Intel skylake CPU intel debugger may be vulnerable as per link

some new Intel processors contain a debugging interface accessible via USB 3.0 ports, that can be used to obtain full control over a system and perform attacks that are undetectable by current security tools.


No special software or hardware tricks are required to exploit target the vulnerability, the researchers said.

Simply having DCI enabled is sufficient
