    I wish motherboard manufacturers would start pushing UEFI into mainstream, I'd replace my current motherboard if I could find a decent, reasonably priced one.

    Hi,

    This is Mebromi: this rootkit takes advantage of Icelord first bios "demo" rootkit, and as it is "made in China", it has been dicovered first by a chinese security campany that named it BMW (sorry why not MERCEDES?), and Mebromi or Trojan:WinNT/Bioskit.A by European and US based av editors.
    Maybe this post might be merged with the Mebromi thread:
