+ - Firmware Flaw Bricks Samsung Laptops on Linux Boot->

Submitted by northernboy
northernboy (661897) writes "The Register is reporting on a dangerous new EFI development (unrelated to Secure Boot) that on ocassion will permanently diable the motherboard of certain Samsung laptops after booting Ubuntu 12.x (and probably other distributions) from USB. Apparently a Samsung hardware driver is involved in the issue. Canonical has informed Samsung of the problem, but there does not seem to be any urgency on Samsung's part."
