I was reading the new and I came across this article . I have not spent lots of time reading the paper the article referred to but I pretty much agree with the fact that people rarely update their BIOS and since it does not get updated regularly it must be vulnerable to attacks.
However there is not known similar attacks, at least on large scale in spite of all the sophisticated attacks we hear about these-days. What is the article (and I) missing? what is stopping such attacks from happening?
