ESET recently discovered what it calls Lojax, the first in-the-wild example of malware being used to infect the UEFI boot sector. In this edition of the podcast, we’re joined by Jean-Ian Boutin of ESET’s Montreal research centre to discuss this new type of attack.
- How it infects;
- What it does;
- Why it’s different than other malware in its persistence;
- How to get rid of it should you get it;
- What other UEFI-targeting attacks could do; and
- How to keep your customers safe from this and other new types of attacks.
All that and more in this edition of the ChannelBuzz.ca Podcast.
