All your AV software is now Obsolete !!!

Hi everybody

The latest set of rootkit viruses can now theoretically mess up your BIOS making it virtually impossible to disinfect your computer by traditional means.

These don't work "normally" (as in "normal virus code") so current AV software is powerless to detect this stuff.

So at least apply a BIOS password or a BIOS LOCK to your machine.
