mats: readers of the log: badBIOS is a hoax, although the principle of the thing is entirely achievable
mats: its amusing there's an actual /r/badBIOS subreddit
asciilifeform: questionable attacks on aes, etc << there are stables of ops grunts paid to sow disinfo - false research leads, general-purpose 'fud' for the academic community, promotion of sensational mystery meats ('badbios' !), etc.

mircea_popescu: incidentally, if badbios howls in a forest but there's no tree to hear it, will it have infected it ?
mircea_popescu: twist : badbios is written in .net

kleeck: Hah. You missed our talk about #badBios earlier, Jurov. I too was lamenting it's beauty.

kleeck: Holy shit, Ruiu said he arrived at the theory about badBIOS's high-frequency networking capability after observing encrypted data packets being sent to and from an infected laptop that had no obvious network connection with—but was in close proximity to—another badBIOS-infected computer. The packets were transmitted even when the laptop had its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth cards removed. Ruiu also disc
kleeck: ""Really, everything Dragos reports is something that's easily within the capabilities of a lot of people," said Graham, who is CEO of penetration testing firm Errata Security. "I could, if I spent a year, write a BIOS that does everything Dragos said badBIOS is doing. To communicate over ultrahigh frequency sound waves between computers is really, really easy.""
nubbins`: ""badBIOS," as Ruiu dubbed the malware, has the ability to use high-frequency transmissions passed between computer speakers and microphones to bridge airgaps."
kleeck: If interested check out what people are reporting in #badBIOS. Scary shit...
