Perhaps I'm just being paranoid, but after this weird crash which gave me a UEFI login prompt I am so scared of getting the ultimate rootkit... the bios/uefi virus. Probably it was because I was swapping hard drives and didn't plug it well enough hence nothing bootable, but it got me thinking:
I have a work computer that I take all my hard drives out of, plug in gaming hard drives and LAN party with no security whatsoever, and then swap my work ones back in. The work disks and play disks are never in at the same time, but surely I should be taking some kind of precaution to make sure that whatever is loading up my work OS hasn't been compromised by the insecure OS. Are there any solutions to this problem? Am I phrasing it correctly? Is there perhaps a motherboard with something like a hardware checksum/hash of the firmware? Are there any crazy hack projects with an "IM ME" or some other piece of third party hardware aimed at ensuring an uncompromised BIOS?
