AMI Firmware Source Code and Private Key Leaked


http://it.slashdot.org/story/13/04/0...ate-key-leaked

Quote:
By leaking this key and the firmware source, it is possible (and simple) for others to create malicious UEFI updates that will be validated & installed for the vendor’s products that use this ‘Ivy Bridge’ firmware. If the vendor used this same key for other products - the impact could be even worse. Even with a quick reaction, odds are users will be unprotected for some time. As users often don’t install firmware updates unless they are having issues - I expect this one to be around for a while.
