Bootkit zero-day fix – is this Microsoft’s most cautious patch ever?

The folks at Naked Security offer a deeper examination of the MSI root key exposure and steps to mitigate it. A three-step process to avoid “locking your keys in the car”. Updates to bootloader security is a loaded shotgun, pointed directly at your feet, and all you need do is pull the trigger to “brick” your computer into a useless state of “cannot boot an OS” forever.

Worthy of note: Microsoft will force all systems to update by early 2024.
