  • SecureBoot on Windows 10 computers may not be disable-able

    While previously MS required x86 computers to be able to disable SecureBoot, with Windows 10 it is no longer a requirement.

    Together with the problem that vendors start to use Intel BootGuard, a technology designed to stop custom Firmware such as Coreboot, the whole picture is now clear.

    Microsoft (or anybody else who commands the secure boot infrastructure) will be able to revoke bootloader keys and make unusable millions of Linux computers on a whim. And there is nothing PC owners can do against it.
