Eight months after discovery, unkillable LoJax rootkit campaign remains active | Ars Technica
Control servers for Fancy Bear's UEFI-burrowing malware still responding to pings.
Last May, researchers published a bombshell report documenting sophisticated malware attributed to the Russian government. The malware, dubbed "LoJax," creates a persistent backdoor that survives operating system reinstalls and hard drive replacements. On Wednesday, researchers published new findings that indicate the campaign remains active.
LoJax in May became the first known case of a real-world attack harnessing the power of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface boot system found in virtually all modern Windows computers. As software that bridges a PC’s firmware and its operating system, UEFI is essentially a lightweight operating system in its own right. That makes it a handy place to hide rootkits because once there a rootkit will remain in place even after an OS is reinstalled or a hard drive is replaced.

First UEFI malware discovered in wild is laptop security software hijacked by Russians | Ars Technica
“LoJax” repurposed LoJack anti-theft agent as rootkit that could survive OS re-installs.
ESET Research has published a paper detailing the discovery of a malware campaign that used repurposed commercial software to create a backdoor in computers’ firmware—a “rootkit," active since at least early 2017 and capable of surviving the re-installation of the Windows operating system or even hard drive replacement. While the malware had been spotted previously, ESET’s research is the first to show that it was actively attacking the firmware of computers to establish a tenacious foothold.
Dubbed “LoJax,” the malware is the first case of an attack leveraging the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) boot system being used in an attack by an adversary. And based on the way the malware was spread, it is highly likely that it was authored by the Sednit/Fancy Bear/APT 28 threat group—the Russian state-sponsored operation tied by US intelligence and law enforcement to the cyber-attack on the Democratic National Committee.

Lessons from Running a Small-Scale Electronics Factory in my Guest Bedroom, part 1: Design – spun.io
Nick Price put together 200+ boards for the 26th DEF CON conference, and hit a few hiccups along the way. For posterity (and to help others design their own PCBs), he compiled a list of some helpful tips he came up with after the fact. And while these are useful for anyone putting together a small handmade batch of boards, they have implications for industrial manufacturing as well. (1)Cut some holes in your boards (2)Add proper programming and debugging interfaces (3)Align all of your pin headers to be on the same 0.1″ grid (4)Think about component dimensions (5)Eliminate as many assembly steps as possible (6)Rename your components once your board layout is finalized (7)Add a test cycle to your firmware.

At 7:36 in this video, Michael Stapelberg (of the Stapelberg controller fame) talks about a reverse-engineered version of the Kinesis firmware that apparently resolves the stuck-modifier bug.

Also, the bits around 10m:00s have some great bits on latency. (Interestingly enough, he also mentions that USB up until version 3 didn’t have any interrupts—it worked solely through polling.)
