Thank you for the info! However we are not affected thanks to
coreboot's default payload being SeaBIOS. If anything, these "uefi
rootkit" news could be used to promote the coreboot(+SeaBIOS) project
to wider audiences

that's a pretty myopic view of coreboot and its users; coreboot
supports 2 different UEFI payloads, which are used by both individual
and commercial entities.

It is nice to hear there are possible alternatives ; to be honest I
don't know about their "marketshare" amoung the coreboot users. From
my point of view as a user (reading mailing lists etc.) it seemed like
the majority of coreboot users are using SeaBIOS and the majority of
libreboot users are using GRUB. Although, its' quite likely that at
the same time the majority of ChromeBook+coreboot users are really
running UEFI payload, thanks to your customized coreboot builds where
you are using it (learned about your work after a quick search)

P.S. sorry it seems I bumped an old thread and now I feel guilty

The majority of coreboot users are using chromeos verified boot :-)
