Millions of PC Motherboards Were Sold With a Firmware Backdoor​

Hidden code in hundreds of models of Gigabyte motherboards invisibly and insecurely downloads programs—a feature ripe for abuse, researchers say.
 
After the Gigabyte power supplies and now this, can’t anything they make be trusted? I’ve never wanted to buy any of their products anyway.
 
Yes true, who can you trust? Still disappointed in Samsung for their SSD firmware, my recent warranty claim on a 2TB 870 EVO went smoothly though.
