Re: Downgrade attack?

We've already seen Lenovo et. al. deliberately compromise their own firmware for financial gain. I don't think trust can be established at that level in the current day and age, sadly, unless you happen to have a signed agreement with the vendor where they take financial liability for any malware / bugs present in the firmware you're not allowed to see or touch....
