    I used Kon-boot recently on a windows 8 laptop and was disturbed by how well it worked. Then I found out there was a mac version.

    How could i prevent this rootkit from working on my macbook? Lock the firmware? Encrypt the drive?

    If they can get admin access, software like undercover are worthless.

    So, turn on FileVault, and enable a firmware password.
