    I wonder how long until there is a patch?

    That's a scary bug. If it really affects all EFI based Macs build before 2014 then Apple has a lot of new firmwares to build and test. Might take a while.

    I don't understand why this wouldn't be stopped by a simple router firewall, but there is so little detail in the article.
