In addition to all the issues with ME listed so far, systems from Dell
etc. ship with UEFI BIOS. Due to its complexity and closed source
approach, many different UEFI implementations have suffered many different
vulnerabilities. Many (all?) include a full network stack. Coreboot is
open source and simply a bootstrap, closing out large swaths of attack
