Rascals are always sociable, and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others company. Arthur Schopenhauer

The security racket back at it again

The security racket is back at it again. I’m not linking to junk, but apparently some “security experts” found out that “Gigabyte motherboards come with a firmware backdoor”.

Except they are not, the firmware update tool just doesn’t check HTTPS certs so you can MiTM arbitrary code into the firmware download stream.

Sometimes most of the times I am ashamed I work in this field.
