Secure boot, any help?
"easily infect machines running Windows 8 and x64 operating systems, and features technology to embed itself in computers so that it's activated almost as soon as the machines are powered on."
That is worrying, as anything that good/stealthy is best killed by booting the machine off a live CD to scan and nuke it. Of course, with secure boot enabled that could be a problem, though we were led to believe it would stop this sort of root-kit ability to pre-empt AV tools.
Anyone had experience of using the Bitlocker or Kaspersky rescue CDs with a Win8 machine? Did you need to disable secure boot, and was that easy enough to do?
