Apparently, this product is now embedded in a wide range of devices (ranging from Apple Inc. to Dell Computers and more). I do architect & advise end-point security efforts in my work (agnostic that I am - I do not recommend individual products), but certainly not an embedded product in BIOS or EFI. Could it be rightly called 'The Self-Healing Endpoint of Privacy'? Has a meme been created? You be the judge - Me?, I'm going back to paper and pencil, air-gapped (of course - dammit, air-gaps are no guaranty of secure platforms either...). What to do. Tip o' the Hat.
In the worst-case scenario, an enterprise continues to invest in platforms that are no longer sufficiently effective, resulting in more personnel delivering currency rather than capability. Security debt is a term that has been coined to describe application vulnerabilities that result from such laggardly behavior. - via by Chris Hockings writing at SecurityIntelligence
News, via Lucian Constantin, writing at PCWorld, details the discovery of a targeted group of LinkedIn Corporation (NasdaqGS: LNKD) users (in this case information security professionals) unwittingly involved in a focused intelligence/espionage campaign to garner discrete corporate information. Another case of social networks as the baseline method for intelligence gathering by nations-states and illicit non-governmental organizations. Aye me buckos! A treasure-trove thee awaits!
