Pondering what Intel might be thinking...
Security Researcher: “Hey, Intel, your BIOS has these gaping big security holes.”
Intel Bug Investigator: “This whole platform is full of bugs. It’s going to take us weeks and weeks to fix it and validate the fixes.”
Intel Manager: “Nah, we’re not going to spend resources fixing old stuff that doesn’t have a solid revenue stream attached to it. Put your nose back to the grindstone working on that next Skylake refresh that we’re going to roll out as a ‘new’ generation.”
Intel Legal Department: “We can’t keep providing BIOSes that we have publicly acknowledged are defective. Take down any known vulnerable ones until new safe ones are available.”
Intel Web Monkey: “Roger that, taking down the old BIOSes until hell freezes over.”
