Maybe I misunderstand how bitlocker/the hack works, but.....
"According to Humphries, the hack is easily prevented. Users can configure BitLocker to prevent a PC from booting, or resuming from hibernation without confirmation of a password or a second key contained on a USB stick."
I'm confused, isn't bitlocker a software solution? Therefore it requires booting off the HDD internal to the laptop that contains the bitlocker boot-time software.
My understanding of the hack was that you plug a USB drive into the laptop, then reboot the laptop and have it boot off the USB drive.
If this is the case, the bitlocker software would never be executed, as the old boot drive that contains the software is not booted off of, thus bitlocker would never start and wouldn't be able to prevent the laptop from booting.
Or do I misunderstand how bitlocker or the hack works?
