badbass Posted November 3, 2012 Share Posted November 3, 2012 I learned something from the episode with my paranoid friend. There are rootkits that attack the bios. I think they put a .bin file and a bootable thing. on the computer and change the mbr. There are some things out there signed bios updates and efi or uefi bioses. I think there are two root kits that attack the bios out in the wild. I wonder if metasplot type tools help this. Intel has something in their new chips. win8 has a secure boot. I dont know what the new intel chips and efi or uefi means for linux os's. Thanks for reading. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
